My name is Mark, and I live in Fleet, in North-East Hampshire, United Kingdom. My house is a typical English 1990's urban property, with a small but secluded back garden (about 10 metres square)
I am a keen gardener with a passion for growing edible plants -- vegetables, fruit and herbs of many different varieties. I am also a keen "Foodie", with a strong interest in eating what my garden produces (aided and abetted by my wife Jane, who is a very accomplished cook).
I have recently been inspired to take some photographs of the crops I produce, and I have set up this blog mainly to showcase these pictures. My plan is to document some of my gardening successes and failures in words and pictures, and to discuss these with like-minded friends (and perhaps to inspire a few beginners in this very rewarding pastime?)
Maybe some of you will already know of me? My garden was recently featured in the Readers Plots section of the September 2010 edition of the well-known gardening magazine The Kitchen Garden

This is my "Outdoor Dining Room"
