How cute is this! It tasted so delicious too, so different to those you buy in the shops. He is only a mini and has taken quite a while to get to this size, but honestly, not a blemish on him.
Our winter garden has been very slow this year, although I guess compared to the summer crops which just ran rampant, it's hard to compete. In the summer you're also keen to be out there, tend to the veg a bit more conscientiously. In the winter it's so wet, your mind isn't on weeding, feeding, chatting and cosetting your little guys. I am looking forward to the warmer months though, it's getting close to that time and I'm going to take over a lot more of the front garden for little beds everywhere. So far there will be zuchs, eggplants, basil a plenty, four varieties of tomatoes, lettuces of varying kinds, a bed dedicated to strawberries and that's as far as I've gotten so far. I want to be sure that there is actually enough planted to influence what we buy. I'm realistic with the space we have, but it's frustrating when something goes really well and you only put in six plants, equally so if you put in more and they're rubbish. Open to suggestions too, what are you planting?
