Welcome to Dave’s Garden Blog

A garden full of fresh vegetables is a sight to behold and quite an achievement with todays busy lifestyle, but for me it's more than that — it's "therapy"— I just love it. There's so much to learn and it's a good excuse to get outside in the fresh air. It's about the only exercise I get sitting behind a computer all day!
Anyway, I decided to start this blog so I could share my experiences with family and friends. Who knows, perhaps I'll inspire someone else to give it a go too. If you've got any tips to share, please feel free to post a comment.

After trying my hand at growing a few different vegetables last year (and really enjoying it), I decided to give it another go this year. I got so carried away last year I ran out of space. I counted about 25 different varieties of fruits and vegetables all growing at the same time, but more about that later.

Anyway this year I've decided to extend the garden, effectively doubling the area I have for planting. So I'm looking forward to trying a few new varieties as well as trying to repeat some of my successes from last year... like the 10kg of spuds I grew on my first attempt (as pictured). They tasted great but only lasted a few weeks with 5 hungry mouths to feed. So I'm keen to give it another go this year, but this time on a larger scale.
