Hello All!
I'm Phil and I enjoy gardening growing vegetables (recently taken on growing vegetable seedlings for sale at work) although at the moment the garden looks more like a building site and needs a lot of work doing to solve this!
I've been interested in growing my own food for a long time and I try to live my life in a low impact way.
I live in Bristol (the South West England one) so I have a bit of a twang to my accent 'ooarrrr alrite me luvver!'
I enjoy chatting about all things vegetables particularly unusual crops, which reminds me I have to go and dig up some oca I was growing in a friends garden! I look forward to chatting with all of you.

Hi Phil, I'm in Chippenham, so not a million miles away from Briz, and with a comparable Westcountry twang!

Nice to meet you. Delve into the old posts and enjoy :-)

Hi Phil, welcome to Ish.

You're in the right place we all enjoy chatting about veg too - and eating them, mainly eating them (or maybe that's just me). :wink:
