Hi, I'm Diane and I live in Suffolk with my daughter, her husband and their 3 children. I have recently moved from Yorkshire which explains why I am very late to this course. In Yorkshire I had a small garden and an allotment for 30 years in one of the higher and wetter areas of the south pennines. Acidic loamy soils. We now have 7 acres of old pasture that was once a dairy farm and we are on the clay belt. I have begun to create a large straw bale raised hugelkultur bed to try and address the much drier and hotter climate down in the SE. We have very limey water and I assume a far more alkaline soil.
