We added two raised beds to our front lawn to grab a little more growing space. I think Geoff was a little worried that I was going all Mediterranean on him, trying to convert every inch to something that provides. They don't encroach at all and if I was the only one with a say in it, I would say we could fit another 3 in on the other side quite easily ......
Purple Haze and Early Nantes carrots - in. Five types of tomatoes - Green Zebra, Tommy Toe, Principe Borghese, Black Russian and Tomato Berry. It is early though and there is still weather ahead so until we're more predictably warm I'll bag them each night before the sun goes down to get them through to the next day.
Peas are big enough to eat, broad beans starting to flower, Broccoli delicious and with none of the funky smell of store bought heads. Garlic, onions and leeks are slow and steady, emphasis on the slow.
