All our seeds arrived last week, so we spent Saturday and Sunday afternoon down in the vegetable garden, clearing, digging and planting. I only got to plant potatoes and they took up two beds on their own…..I think I may have gone slightly overboard on potatoes!!!! Miss E really enjoyed getting stuck in to all the dirt and mess. She helped to plant the potatoes by taking them and firing them into the trench. 🙂 This week in the evenings we spent a few hours down there as well with Miss E joining us via her monitor. We’ve managed to plant some carrots and cabbage and Mr P dug out some more plots, but were hindered from doing too much due to the really strong winds we have been having here as of late. I’ve also planted some courgettes and corn inside using our cardboard egg cartons as it suggested they be started off inside in warmer climates and then get transferred outside. Maybe we will get some time this weekend to plant more, but these are a few snapshots of how it’s been going.
If anyone has tips for humane and ecofriendly ways of keeping pests stuch as slugs etc off our veg, I would be most appreciative 🙂
