Gloucestershire introduction
« on: April 26, 2018, 10:22:00 pm »
Hi, I have 5 acres near Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire. At one time I had poultry and sheep and ponies but now there is just my daughters pony left and a few DIY liveries to keep it company. I found I wasn't really cut out to keep animals that needed culling or slaughtering at some point so now I'd like to turn to vegetables, fruit and/or flowers though my son in law is keen on keeping some animals here. I have just bought a second hand chipper/shredder and I am hoping to get a poly tunnel put up this year in the summer. I would love to chat to others or meet up with anyone nearby!

Hello and welcome to the forum. I'm not a veg grower myself but there are plenty of others on here

Hi and welcome from Shropshire so not too far. I am a vegetable grower but only on a small scale. Glad to talk about it though.
