I’m Richard and I’m a Grow-Your-Own enthusiast and blogger living in Cardiff, UK. I’m mostly found on our family allotment, wearing wellies and getting my hands dirty.
When I’m not on the plot, I’m reading as many kitchen gardening books I can get my hands on, engaging with the gardening industry and looking for ways to inspire and support other people to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
My eight-year-old daughter, Ava, loves spending time on the allotment too. It’s wonderful to see her excited about the crops we grow together. I want her to grow up with a strong relationship with food, understand where it comes from and be thrilled to eat it. I want other families to join in too.
