Grow your own

Today saw the return of exciting times in the greenhouse (not a euphemism). As I started the day in the potting shed.

Potted on the cucumbers and planted out 6 hanging baskets of tomato plants. Didn’t have much time, but it’s a start.

Need to clear out the beds to plant out the courgettes, squashes and pumpkins I’ve been given. Lots more tomatoes and lettuces to be sorted out too. Anyone want some yellow chard? It’s gone a bit wild!

I do love growing my own. One things for sure, I won’t starve this year.

Covid jab

I know some people have felt ill after it, but I’m feeling full of energy after it. Very odd indeed.

Good job too as I spent the rest of the day cleaning out the shed, the greenhouse and starting off my seeds for this year.

Treated myself to a Chinese takeaway too. Happy Easter everyone!


I love this day. The day the seed catalogue comes through the door. It’s so exciting looking at the new varieties and plan what to grow this year.

It’s not for everyone, but I honestly never thought I’d be this person. The person who’s excited about growing veg. Just shows you never know unless you try and we’re always growing…
