Well, I’ve finally taken the plunge after years of talking about it and starting my own vegetable garden!
I was going to put it off again this year, but after coming home from shopping a few weeks ago, I found hubby had dug out a patch of garden. “It’s for your vegetable garden”, he announced proudly.
I wasn’t impressed. It meant that I had to do something about it now, otherwise the lovely, freshly dug piece of land was going to turn into a great place for littlest to make his mud pies!
So today I finally planted my first veg. I had some mature strawberry plants given to me, so they went in, alongside leeks, potatoes, beetroot, broccoli, parsnips and potatoes. I have absolutely no idea what I am doing, so I’m not holding out much hope of even a seedling making an appearance! It all seems a very magical and mysterious process, one I’m definitely in the dark about.
Watch this space…as the first bits of greenery appear I’ll be posting pictures.
