- ABOUT US -
Welcome to Julie's Kitchen Garden!
For as long as I can remember I have wanted to grow my own vegetables. But through various stages of my life there has always been a reason why this hasn't happened, not enough space, not enough time...you know, the usual reasons! Well back in the summer of 2016 I found myself with more time on my hands than was usual and decided it 'was now or never'! So with the help of my supportive husband (who was always on hand to help with the heavy lifting!), I built a Kitchen Garden.
The plan at first was to have two small raised beds, enough to grow some lettuce , herbs and maybe some tomatoes. As with most things in my life I got a little carried away and before I knew it we had more than a dozen raised beds. That first summer we grew more than 20 different vegetables, salads and fruit and I was hooked!
I started an Instagram account as my daughters thought I would enjoyed recording my journey in photos. Within 6 months I had 2500 followers (amazing!!) and as I write this on 31st December 2017 I have over 8000 followers! People now ask for my advice, which I still find rather strange as Im still learning everyday but of course I'm happy to share what has worked, and hasn't, along the way! Instagram has been a great source of inspiration, support and advice for me so if you don't have an account already, do join!
I hope you enjoy my blog and please do leave comments below or pop over to Instagram and leave comments there too. I'd love to hear from you! Happy growing!
