But this Spring we dug 2 large and one smaller vegetable patches out of the lawn to the side of the house. It has all just started to look like the real thing, despite prolonged soggy and also dry spells:
|Onions, Potatoes, Carrots, Spinach and Beetroot|
|French, Runner and Broad Beans & PS Broccoli (protected from the Cabbage White butterflies)|
So far no disastrous bug or disease attacks, and it's so exciting to be now collecting 3 kinds of beans, plus carrots, beetroot, courgettes etc every day ... and even some very early purple sprouting broccoli - just as well it's not overwintering if we have a repeat of the last two years' weather.
I love growing root vegetables the most, especially carrots - it always seems extra magical to pull up those gorgeous orange roots from the ground.
