How Does Your Garden Grow....

....very well at the moment! With all this sun and the rain my garden is going great guns.
I know this post is a little off kilter for me, but I thought I would share with you my other love...growing fruit and vegetables. I have a garden the size of a postage stamp that's also home to two devious rabbits, but I use every inch possible.

Say hello to Bluebell on the left and Mr. Augustus Tibbs on the right.

Last year I went mad, growing all sorts and got a bit over run, but this year I'm sticking to just the items I eat the most. So far this is how it's looking.

Back row, left to right: Spinich, Courgette, Foxgloves, Lettuce and Snap Peas
Front row Pepper and Tomato plant

My first crop of summer Strawberries

Rocket & Lettuce
From left to right, Back: Clematis, Kitchen Bay, Courgette (yellow) and French Beans
Front: Strawberries, Rocket, Cherry Tomatoes
I have also planted, Basil, Rosemary, Thyme, Garlic Chives and Runner beans.  Everything I have grown from seed, apart from a Tomato plant bought last week from Broadway Market.  

Right, back to the online shopping!



  1. Oh, I love your last sentence - "back toi online shopping" - so true! ;) X

    P.S. Don’t forget about my giveaway!
