daughter's cabbages and my photos.


My 11 yr old Victoria was desperate to grow some thing other than beans so she had a go at sowing cabbages about 5 weeks ago. She potted them up into tomato pots yesterday. She used soil from the turves that were lifted and left to rot last year. She paid attention to firming them in and then gave them a good soaking. We went for Durham Early as Durham was a childhood daytrip for me and she also likes the the river Wear at Durham.

Whilst blogging may I take the opportunity to thank you for all the lovely feedback on my plant photos. I am listing the plants in my garden and when they come into flower or are doing something interesting I am adding photos. My brother has now formally handed over ownership of his camera to me :o))))
Aren’t big brothers fab?
