If someone said a few years ago that I would get the gardening bug I would have laughed at them. I mean gardening is for the fluffy slipper sort of person isn’t it? Ahem…well I can declare that yes I am bit by the gardening bug and no I don’t have fluffy slippers or anything else aging like corduroy trousers or housecoats. Last year was my first taste of gardening of the veg kind. One tomato plant, lots of lettuces, a few carrots and some radishes. Not bad going for just seeing if I could grow anything. This year the veg plot has expanded and so has the list of produce. 21 to be precise and that’s not counting the herbs and fruits.
I am no expert so it might not all grow and I am still getting to grips with succession growing and I am terribly impatient. But I will try to pass on any tips, ideas or mistakes as I go along.
