home grown veg
With a worrying start, my 22 year old son needs a brain scan!
I took the rest of the day having some gardening therapy.
The potatoes got earthed up. I sowed some more dwarf beans. The asters got re potted. And I made way for the new Dahlias by thinning out some ground cover plants which have gone mad. The tree lilly’s now have a more prominent setting and everything got a good feed up!
Oh and for the first time ever I saw one of the carp jump out of the pond. Heard them often, but never seen them! And it was the big Black one…………
It seems to me that growing you own veg may be therapeutic but its not what you would call cheap. I added up the cost of the potatoes. For 6 bags which cost? £10 plus 4 bags of compost @ £5 each. £30 underestimated I expect . They better be wonderful potatoes, but then when the pots are finished I’ll have to get them planted with something else. parsnips for Xmas perhaps.
Looking on the bright side, holiday in two week, and counting, lets hope the boys remember to water the green house!
