Hello and welcome to My Shetland Garden. This a blog about my passion for growing food, foraging and seasonal cooking. But also about challenges of gardening at 60° North.
Since I was small I’ve loved spending time in my granny and grandad’s beautiful walled kitchen garden, being surrounded by cordon-trained apple trees and running amongst lovingly tended vegetable beds. We’d go visit them a couple of times a year and the garden had always been my little green paradise. I so wish I could go back there one day...
Also I’ve always had a keen interest in herbs and natural remedies as well as in anything to do with growing or gathering food and cooking with it. And I love experimenting too.
Fifteen years ago I moved to Shetland and since then I’ve been discovering, step by step, how to grow fruit and vegetables here, as well find medicinal plants growing in the wild.
I hope you enjoy my blog and find some interesting recipes or inspiration here!
