Kitchen Garden Journal - Index

 

In 2008 we began trying to re-establish a kitchen garden on a farm in West Oxfordshire and this garden diary covers some of the work we did.

 

Real life interrupted things (as so often happens) as Miranda started a blog on the Royal Horticultural Society website at the same time as beginning to try and set up a small gardening business. Trying to set up a business is a slow and time consuming matter, and time for projects suddenly became very tight and we had to scale back our plans for content here on wildchicken.

 

The garden diary is here as an archive, and you can see a list of Miranda's wildlife garden blogs here. Her blog on the RHS can be found in the wild about gardening section - you can see a list of the posts here and here.

 

The gardening journal from 2005 - 2008 is here and the kitchen garden journal archive is below on this page.

 

July 2014 is the start of a new phase of blogging here on the wildchicken website as we begin to rationalise and reorganise all the content from the last 10 years.

2012

Over the last 2 years Miranda has been working on establishing a small gardening business in Oxfordshire and that has taken up nearly all her time.

 

She has plans for more writing here on wildchicken, but at the moment, you can follow her writing on The Royal Horticultural Society website in the wild about gardens section
