Hi,

I thought I'd better introduce myself Very Happy

I'm Jude and I live in East Anglia, I grow lots of vegetables and am a fan of growing and saving heritage seed varieties. I also love cooking and am trying to become more self-sufficient.

I look forward to meeting you all Very Happy

Hello, you're very welcome. I hope you'll tell us a bit more about what you grow. I'm an allotment gardener, and I'm ever still exploring what grows best in my heavy Bedfordshire clay soil.

I grow most things climbing french beans, broad beans, runner beans (I love beans!), peas, potatoes, salad crops, tomatoes, courgettes, sweetcorn. I try to grow brassicas but they keep getting eaten Rolling Eyes

I also like to grow cut flowers and fruit.

Very Happy Hello Jude! when I was pregnant with my son in 1984, I so wanted to call him Jude, but my inlaws had gived him my husbands name before I was out of the recovery room! He wishes I had my way, he tells me! Good to meet you.

Mine is short for Judith, which I don't like at all. I think it can be a male or female name! I like it!
