The Best of Real Men Sow

Real Men Sow have been around since September 2010. In that time, I’ve been fortunate to receive mostly very nice comments on the blog. My favourite ever was ‘…you write like I wish I could, it’s fantastic’. That made me smile, as you can imagine.

My most viewed page is the Real Men Sow Veg Savings Spreadsheet 2011. The original spreadsheet post caused my first readership ‘spike’.

My second most popular page to date is 8 Ways to Get Free Seeds, published back in January 2011. The follow up to this post, 2013’s 7 Ways to Get Cheap Seeds is also proving popular.

The most visited day on the blog so far was when I posted Let’s Hear it for Rhubarb, which was picked up by popular American website Gardener’s Supply Company. I got plenty of traffic that day from their Facebook page.

Mum’s Super Squash Planting Method gave me another busy day. I’ve had great success with squashes, and I reckon its this method that’s the key.

Personally, my favourite two posts have been Giving Up the Allotment and Singing the Praises of Jan Time. Mums are important, we should all be nice to them.

I also enjoyed compiling Ten Tips for Allotment Beginners, based on my first few years as an allotmenteerist. I’ve learnt so much, and it was good to relive some of that.

Long may it continue. Thanks for stopping by.
