A New Home

I have some news to share – we’re moving house next week.

We’re staying in the village, upsizing to a lovely big family home. I will be sad to leave my vegetable garden behind but happy with the knowledge the new owners are looking forward to joining the ‘grow your own’ way of life.

Our new garden has the most beautiful Koi pond I’ve ever seen, complete with a small bridge. Stepping down the huge rock steps the garden is mostly a blank canvas of extensive lawn and established fruit trees. There’s a greenhouse but sadly no veg garden. Once I’ve had enough time to get to know my new garden I will think about how I could design a raised bed veg patch around the greenhouse, sleepers would look lovely. But for now my allotment will be my place to grow vegetables and get stuck into the growing year.

I will post again once we’re settled, so please bear with me!

  1. Good luck with the move Karen, look forward to seeing your new Koi pond – and the rest of your garden – in due course. I managed to lose my subscription to your blog, so I am hopelessly out of date, at least I will be in at the beginning of you blogging about your new abode!

    • Ah thank you Janet, I hope your new home/garden is coming along well. Once I’ve settled in I will have more time to browse other blogs, last year seemed so hectic with one thing or another.

  2. Good Luck in your new home. I hope you find some exciting discoveries in the garden. I am sure many will appear throughout the year for you to enjoy. Great picture of the ladybird in its home. Could I copy it to use in in articles in our lottie website please?

  3. Fortunate that your hard work at your allotment means that you have some veg growing space still – I think it would otherwise be quite hard to leave your current home. You’ll certainly be very busy this year planning the new garden – I wish you well and hope your move goes smoothly! Caro x

  4. Good luck with the move, hope the family and the girls settle in and enjoy their new surroundings perfect time with spring on the horizon!

  5. Good luck, looks like I’ve found your blog at an opportune time!

    Have done a similar thing recently, and gave up my allotment to grow veg in the garden. I feel completely reinspired, and it sounds like the same has happened to you.

    Look forward to reading more. :)

  6. Good luck with your move, very exciting planning a new garden! New to your blog and really enjoying it. Love your jewellery.

  7. Hey Karen. I’ve been away from the blogging circle for a wee while but now back with a new enthusiasm :) all the very best with the move. It’s nice that you are staying in the same area and upsizing even though it may throw you off your gardening groove for a bit. I’m sure you will get back to it in no time, you are an excellent grower. Fantastic pic as always, these guys are my best defence against pests attacking my beloved chillies!
