When we bought our house it had a big garden attached. I mean much bigger than I can cope with!
I am terrified of it, the previous owners had kept it beautifully and everywhere we have lived has had a tiny garden or no garden at all. I tell a lie, the very first house we had had one and we killed everything in it.
So why buy a house with a decent garden? Well it seemed a good idea at the time.
We have been here two years. Last year I just ‘maintained’ the garden the best I could – OK OK a few things have died, that red leafy plant, and worse the pear tree was very poorly last year, I am just waiting to see what happens with it this year, it has leaves on it so that seems like good news.
We have 2 beds of Raspberries, and a rhubarb patch (they sort of take care of themselves).
We also have a herb garden which I have replanted (herbs are cheapish). So last year was a success. ish.
I cannot count the vegetables that the previous owners planted (that would be cheating). So I have planted a few things these year. On the packets it said they were ‘easy’ things so fingers crossed.
I have planted outside
Radish (apparently the easiest things to grow)
They are all outside now and growing slowly.
In the greenhouse are:
More radish – they grow really fast
and a few more things yet to sprout.
This challenge was to eat some of my own homegrown vegetables – done – I have 100s of radishes! a few everyday. They really are easy. Does anyone want any 🙂
But I learn today that radishes are bad for my thyroid – CAN NOT WIN.
