I love spring, the unexpected summery days, clearing the garden, planting seeds…
Our garden is full of bulbs, a spring garden:)
We are blessed with a garden with great variety, large shrubs, winding paths, rockery and an area where my husband has created raised beds.
At our former home we had a small back garden and allotment. This garden gives us the best of both, although admittedly a much smaller area for growing.
The weekend was glorious weather, the strawberry bed was weeded, raised beds dug over. The tot and I enjoyed planting carrots, parsnips, and cut and come again salad leaves. I say enjoy – it takes a certain level of letting go when planting seeds with a tot, the plants will be coming through in clumps:) As usual we are crop rotating, thank goodness for my husbands memory.
I love growing our vegetables, picking salad fresh for lunch boxes, making tomato sauce, and in the autumn chutneys ready for Christmas presents:)
I strongly encourage you to grow your own – you don’t need raised beds, salad, beetroot, french beans are a few if the items you can grow in window boxes and pots. We pick up cut and come again salad leaves seeds from the 99p shop and gain many, many salads from the one packet of seeds.
Or have a go at regrowing vegetables indoors, with this great list of food which regrows:)
