How I love salad days.
Only two things that money can’t buy. That’s true love and home grown tomatoes.
In terms of being a gardener I would say I was in my salad days. I am rather young and inexperienced..just finding my feet. This is our first year growing veg from seed.
With an abundance of sunshine and rain the garden is at last bearing fruit and it is exciting. It makes me so happy to look at the vegetables we have grown from seed.
We have lovely lettuces
and we have ravishing radishes
They taste divine and there is something so lovely about just popping outside to pick your tea.
The strawberries are ripening
and the raspberry fruit is starting to emerge
The sweetcorn is growing strong (look how dry the ground is!)
and the pumpkin is begining to bud
The herb garden I showed you a few weeks ago has gone wild and abundant.
The tomato plants are growing steadily too.
It’s going to be a delicious summer. (If you are wondering what happened to the carrots and spinach well so am I …hey ho!)Isn’t it all looking rather fabulous!
It makes my heart happy and so wonderful for the children to see how food can be grown in the garden from seed.
How’s your garden doing?
