About my garden: I have a dormer bungalow on just over half an acre of ground overlooking the Burren river just about three mile outside Carlow town on the Wexford N80 road side. I am originally from Ballsbridge in Dublin and I am a genuine Dub. Three quarters of my site is garden of which one quarter is now set in a vegetable garden on which I have an 8 x 12 foot glasshouse which my dear wife bought me for my birthday in 2008. Only erected August '08 and I have had great success and enjoyment with it and my new veggie since I started in 2009 to date.
I have put a few photos of my garden up on the site. It's a wonderful website. Full of information and help by it's members,
More about me: I am 62 in March this year 2013 and have always had a very keen interest in gardening. I live with my wife MaryLou and youngest son Philip who is still at home. Looking at my family tree ancestors there are a good few "greenfingered" members. My Great Grandfather and both my two Grandmothers. I just love the Nature of it all. I joined Garden.ie Garden club in spring '09 and have been a reasonably regular commenter and journal updater. Although I have been somewhat lax the last 12 months or more.
