The first part of this winter has been spent – for me, at least – in getting on top of “life” and comfortably settled in our new house. It takes time and I don’t like rushing things. I knew at the back of my mind that garden planning was going to need to start happening very soon, but I couldn’t rush it. This morning I sat on the sofa with my younger son and we had a good look through one of our organic seed catalogues. He used one of the blank note pages at the back to create his “must have” list for this year.
