About Me

I’m Alex, I’m currently living in Portugal, and I want to live more sustainably.

Growing plants is not something I’m particularly passionate about, but I’ve developed an interest in it after becoming vegan and looking for ways to live more in contact with nature and my own food.

I believe learning how to grow our own food is the best way to do it – as you have more control over what goes into your stomach, and you also learn how to appreciate food more. Yes, it takes patience and a lot of work to grow it!

This blog aims to share my experience in growing plants by writing the answers to questions I have once wanted to know myself, and while I don’t proclaim to be an expert, I hope my input can provide you with the help you need.
