About

This blog tracks the progress of a plan to spend less time in the office and more time in the garden. I want more strawberries and fewer spreadsheets. Lots of flowers instead of hours at a screen.

I’ve been ‘Doing the Plan’ since January 2017, when I quit my job in London, and moved with my lovely husband and our indifferent cat to an amazing old house in Frome, Somerset, with a marvellous, overgrown cottage garden.

We’re slowly reviving the house and garden, trying to grow our own vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers, and spending more time outdoors. 🙂 That’s Doing the Plan.

 

This blog began in 2016 when we were planning to leave the city.
