Welcome to The Productive Garden.

Lots of people have gardens that look pretty, but what if you could have a garden that feeds you as well. If you find this an interesting idea then stay tuned. After a bit of a lazy winter and unrealised plans from last summer I have found myself with a bit of a mess. I am going to show you how I am turning my garden from an overgrown weed patch to a productive food factory. I plan to update the site weekly (or more if there is something special) so come back regularly to see how things are going.
