Kev at An English Homestead

Most of my readers will already know Kev Alviti over at An English Homestead, if you don't you should definitely check him out.

I have always had a lot of respect for Mr Alviti, his blog was one of the first blogs I ever followed when I wasn't even really sure what a blog was!
When we were just starting out on our journey I used to read Kev's blog and think "what an awesome bloke" He grows, he rears livestock, he is an amazing father to his children and shared similar views to me on almost everything.

One of the things I love most about the blogging community is that it allows me to connect with amazing people all over the world that I might never have met in the real world. Over time me and Kev have become great friends and he has sent me gifts in the past, and was my first choice when we started to Showcase Badass Dads on my other site (great article if you haven't read it yet).

Today the postman dropped off another gift from Kev, sent for no other reason than he is such a genuinely nice guy. It contained a variety of seeds and a brilliant vintage book on growing apples that I cannot wait to get stuck in to now.

Great Gift from Kev at An English Homestead

The seeds he has sent us in those awesome stamped envelopes were Chilli Peppers, Parsnips, Chives, Coriander, Electric Daisy and Achocha so hopefully I can get them all growing over at the Corral Community Garden Project this year.

So once again Thank You Kev, you are a true gent and as soon as we are all set up on the land I can't wait for you and the family to come and visit us out in the sunny Spanish mountains!

    1. Equal opportunities and all that, we swap very manly things like seeds and keep it a secret that we send each other lipstick and high heels lol

    1. Ah thank you Kymber. I think we just try our best, nothing any other man couldn't do if he tried really its just a shame there aren't more triers! I think it helps that both of us aren't afraid to fail at something so it doesn't stop us from trying in the first place

    1. It is odd that there is a much higher precent age of women that blog compared to men. I suppose the fact that I hate football frees up a good chunk of time to be more productive hahaha

  7. Love the community spirit here. Very kind of Kev
    I emailed you yesterday but it bounced - to get the address to send the seeds to - so I will send you a message on here. If you can reply with it I'll get something over to you asap :)

    1. That's strange, I'm in the process of setting up a new email from our fastblog.es domain so hopefully won't miss any emails in the future. Thanks for messaging on FB it's always the fastest place where to get hold of me lol

  8. What a fun gift to receive in the mail. I am getting ready to start seeds indoors (onions, peppers, tomatoes, etc.) These will get set out in the garden in spring, which I am anxious for... but SO MUCH to do before then!

    1. i always find that this time of year goes so fast that if youre not really well prepared then before you know it its too late to plant a lot of thing you might have liked to!
