I didn’t grow anything last year as everything was a bit hectic. This year I’ve just stuck to a few plants and it’s not gone too badly.
Here are some of the veggies I picked this morning.
The tomatoes are just starting to ripen, and I’m glad I’ve tried different colours and varieties. The cucumbers have just finished, and the runner beans are in full flow. The one big failure this year has been courgettes. I think the raised beds are actually exposed to too much sun – I didn’t have much luck when I grew them before, so I will try and move them somewhere else next year.
Our plum trees are also about to produce a bumper crop. You might remember that two of them snapped in half during a heavy snow fall on Boxing Day. They are now growing again from where they snapped off and I’ve had a few plums already – they taste delicious.
Over the winter I want to sort out some more raised beds and think about what else I could grow. It’s all about experimenting to see what will work.
Have you had lots of veg from your garden this year?
Until next time, Tawney x
