1st crop of the year


I am so excited, taking my 1sy crop of the year for my lunch today …
fresh lettuce, radishes and spring onion along with some beetroot i picked last year.Taking some toms, cucumber and ham too.
It is worth every backache in the garden to be rewarded with fantastic food …hope you all enjoy your day the sun is shining here in south yorkshire :-)

Well done, Mrs Melon - you have produced your salad things very early. I'm sure they all taste a lot better being fresh from your garden.
