Welcome to Life at No.27,
I am a 20-something year old, loving every step of my journey learning to grow fresh vegetables and cut flowers at No.27.
I currently work full time in the corporate world and am also studying at University with the hope to graduate by the end of 2016.
On the 27th October 2015, I became the official owner of plot No.27.
For years I had dreamed of having my own haven of fresh air and tranquillity to grow my own produce. Roll on April 2015, I moved to the Oxfordshire countryside, put myself on the council allotment waiting list and started growing my own fruit and vegetables in pots and containers at home.
After waiting for the right plot, the email arrived and No.27 was mine. At roughly 7.5m x 20m, my patch of paradise is certainly big enough for just me.
With minimal experience, a waist high overgrown plot full of perennial weeds but bucket loads of enthusiasm and determination, I was excited but certainly apprehensive of the journey ahead.
‘Life at No.27’ is my highly enthusiastic and ever learning journey.
I hope you enjoy the blog and my ramblings.
