    Default Now I know why we garden

    I have discovered why so many of you break your backs gardening. I planted potatoes and have just eaten a few of the result. WOW they were just lovely I am now determined to do better next year.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing. But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    It's a great feeling of accomplishment when you "eat the fruit of your labour".

    Yes sassylass well and truely hooked. I am looking through books I have had for an age planning next years planting ( listen to me I sound as if I know what I am talking about!) Don't think I will try anything too ambitious but hey in for a penny.

    By the way when do I pull up my leeks to cook?

    tatties are nearly half done, peas never make the house the bairns just help themselves outside, broccoli (1st year trying) is ready, and the sweetcorn i think is ready in the greenhouse. only thing that didn't work tihs year was the watermelons couldn't get them to set. will try again next year
    not a bad year for the veg just not a great year to sit outside and relax

    hi lynne,
    I could not get the watermelon to take this year.Bad weather but i am gonna try next yr,get them well established in the house first....My broccoli has a little way to go and the sweetcorn needs all the help it can get...I have cauli,leeks onions, beetroot, carrots and i hope that they will be ready soon as i want to get pickling.....Taste so much better when you grow it yourself.....
