Look what we have grown!

Our veg patch has done us proud this year and we have already harvested, strawberries and made jam;eaten an awful lot of chard, spinach, mixed salad leaves, radish, cougettes and our first tomatoes.
 
We will dug some of our potatoes this coming week and although it is difficult to see in the photo we have sweet corn up to the sky and squash to come.
As well as carrots and cabbage still growing.
The beans are doing well at last, as I was a bit slow starting them off in the green house and then slugs got to some before I did!!LOL

All this with extra pots and bags in a garden that's not that big.. it was just tumpy grass, a rotten shed and a monstrous concrete garage set in the middle in 2001 when I bought the house.. But with hard work and bought in soil we have this lovely and productive piece of heaven which we sit in every day


Happy Days
