Disaster – a whole bunch of my seedlings where upended and destroyed by Granny B’s cat :-( Just means I have to start all over again with a few. But I’m so glad that we had already planted the majority of our current batch into the veggie patch.
As you can see from the pics we have the full compliment of seedlings in at the moment – peas, broad beans, beetroot, last of the spring onions and beans, leeks, pak choy, brussel sprouts– yum. I’d like to add some parsnips and garlic as well. I’m also not having much luck with the carrots. All the bare spaces are where our carrots “should” be. I’ll just keep soldiering on until we get some :-)
Did anyone see Costa’s Garden Odyssey this week? I’m very intrigued by using edible plants in my mainstream garden beds. I really like their use of thyme and gold marjoram as borders. We still haven’t come up with a replacement for the grasses out the front of our house. So along with the new passionfruit, I might make use of some of these ideas.
PS As a funny side note, you know you’re raising a green child when they net their Lego trees to stop the birds eating their fruit LOL.
