Helen Cross

A farmers daughter from the south west coast of Scotland, Helen is a food writer who encourages parents and carers to get children gardening and cooking and educate the next generation about where their food comes from whilst championing Scottish farming. Not a trained chef, Helen is a good old fashioned home cook with a degree in history specialising in European feminism! She married a rugby player who unsurprisingly, despite being retired, still has a very healthy appetite and with three boys a lot of time is spent as a family in the kitchen cooking and making a mess.

And sow it begins... 🌱 

Pumpkin patch prep has already begun! The first of our seeds arrived last week. Some familiar varieties here but lots of new ones to try too. 🎃

Signing off for a while...

Day 5 of the new year and we’re in another lockdown. Not where any of us want to be (especially in the depths of winter in Scotland) and certainly the 5 of us are all feeling topsy turvy again. The prospect of virtual school and missing family, friends and ‘normal’ life dreadfully is hitting us all hard. 
⁣
While these little squares have the ability to provide a whole heap of support and a link to the outside world, my relationship with my phone and social media has got a little bit out of whack over the last wee while. These little people need the best version of me to help them through the next few weeks so I’m going ‘cold turkey’ and stepping away for a wee while!
⁣
So, stay safe and good luck. Above all, be kind to yourselves. The light is most definitely at the end of the tunnel, we just need to keep going. Sending love, Lx
