Farm In My Pocket

A Home Farming Resource

Farm In My Pocket is a site where you can find information about how to grow your own food. As Andy and I are keen polytunnel growers, of course that tends to be our focus – but there’s lots more, too. If you find it useful, please let us know! And if there’s anything you need to know about and you can’t find it here, let us know! We’re always interested in expanding our knowledge.


Gardening in difficult times…doing our bit against Covid 19 

While most of these articles are pretty old now, all the growing tips are still as valid as ever. And, the really good news is that new articles are now being created and posted, regularly. If you’re wondering about growing some of your own food this year – and, let’s face it, if you’re ever going to do it, this year is your best chance ever – go for it! While almost all the gardening centres are closed, you can still order seeds online. Do it do it do it! Any questions, send us an email. We’ll help you absolutely as much as we’re able to.
