    Hello there fellow horticulturalists. My name is Sean from Long Island, New York.

    Zone 7B.

    I finally took the plunge and started gardening this year. And my word, what a mess!

    Blight, aphids, not enough sun, too much rain, shade everywhere.

    Hopefully we'll make it through this :)

    God bless.

    Sean from LI

    Sean just imagine your satisfaction when the mess has been cleared and you see the first sprouts appear from the seeds you've planted. That's what gets you hooked and makes you into a gardener. Well, at least, it did for me!!

    Welcome to The Stew from Scotland.

    Sean, welcome to the wonderful world of gardening! We all have set-backs in weather, with insects, and sometimes just plain stubborn seeds! But we soldier on and eventually harvest, which is one of the best feelings in the world.
    Please keep us updated on your progress, ask any questions you may have, and just enjoy the Stew!

    Hi Sean and welcome.

    Here in North-West England, we haven't seen rain in over a week! As a county we have a lot of rain in the year, but a couple of weeks of sun can bring a hosepipe ban!
