The Gardening Bug

I’ve been hit by a gardening bug! The other day, I spent the afternoon reconditioning my vegetable patch, planing rows of cherry tomatoes, lettuce and snow peas seedlings. I also refreshed some of my potted herbs – basil, coriander and oregano.

After that, I had a good workout turning the compost heap and worm farm. Ah the smell of rotting vegetables!

For some reason, my sons really want me to grow carrots. I’ve never grown carrots before, so I’ve plonked in a row of baby carrots, not sure how well they’ll do though. Must try broccoli next.
