Grow your own salads and vegetables

This year I’m going to grow my own salads and vegetables.

My delightful but permanently broke teenage son agreed for a modest fee to clear part of the jungle garden to create a small vegetable plot. So the first thing I did was to plant beans, kohlrabi, onions, potatoes and cabbages.

I didn’t plant all those weeds, though… they did that themselves!

But this is a fairly shady part of the garden. The bit that gets the sun is the old farmyard… which is concreted over. So there I decided to try growing things in pots.

It’s a bit of a hotchpotch of flowers, herbs, lettuces, cabbages and peas… but it was a lot of fun to do. And we get to eat it afterwards!

Easter in Bruges

We went to Bruges for Easter. The weather was wonderful… and the city never fails to take your breath away with its beauty.

You didn’t steal mine did you?

Thought not!
