Where I live: Arigna, Co Roscommon Member since: March 2010 Last here: 1322 days 7 hours ago
About my garden: We have a 3 acre smallholding where we grow flowers, herbs and loads of veg crops. We have also planted lots of fruit trees and bushes. We do not use any chemicals so everything including flowers is naturally grown. We have our own manure from our animals and also make our own compost. In the summer we make liquid feeds from comfrey and nettles. Andy did a bee-keeping course last year, so hopes are high for our own honey this year. Our aim is to be self-sufficient in vegetables and most of our fruit needs also when our plantings reach maturity. Check us out on www.arignanaturalgardens.com.
More about me: I live in North Roscommon with my husband Andrew. I love gardening especially growing veg. We are both vegetarian and I love cooking with our own naturally grown produce.
