Re: How about a gardening thread?

I remember my parents having 2 old blue wrapped 'pains de sucre' in the attic. Wonder what happened to them?

Re: How about a gardening thread?

Today I cleaned up the garden a bit and found some renegade carrots. This one caught my eye - barely





The others I pulled up weren't much bigger - but they made a fine addition to my roasted root dinner tonight!

Re: How about a gardening thread?

I still have raspies growing AND ripening

Other than that all the winter veges are doing fine and have withstood the frost we went through earlier.

Don't forget, this is my first proper gardening year here. At my old place, after magpie like new neighbours, who raided the small plot (with veges such as cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins,onions, radishes and a few red currant bushes and raspberry canes) intended for ALL neighbours....

I moved my garden upstairs and had my veges and edibles allotment on the balcony. I managed to grow quite a lot on that small space to help ease the food cost and make the tiny budget stretch farther.

During winter I only grew spinach and lambs salad.


I cannot put into words, how much it means to me, to have finally a proper garden I can tend to again and a big (high rise beds) allotment to give us food in abundance.

I am already sketching the rotation of beds/plants and what I want to grow next year
