The vegetable and cut flower garden is a very important part of the small holding. Established last year using the no-dig method on an area that was previously laid to lawn, the garden allows us to live an almost self sufficient lifestyle and also feed some of the animals to a smaller extent.
Set to expand in 2016, this part of the garden will provide us with all the usual staple crops as well as some more unusual and rare vegetables and fruits. We also grow all of our own cut flowers and other plants for use in the home and for sale.
Adjacent to the vegetable garden we will have a small orchard and soft fruit growing area as well as a coppice to grow hazel poles, willow and dogwood for weaving and other fruits and nuts.
