Last Beds Dug!!!

Its taken us 4 years but we have finally dug the finally two beds on the plot. This area has been covered overed for a long time now. Its a great feeling. Now we just need to get them ready to plant and add some manure.

Veg from the plot

We have had some lovely veg from the plot the last few weeks,

My Favorite so far is the Purple & yellow carrots. As you can see Arthur could not wait for me to cook or cut the carrott - Straight in the mouth!

A Weeks holiday down the plot

This week I took a week of work to spend down the plot, this enabled us to do many jobs we have been trying to do for ages. We got Steve's parent to come down to help us make our shed level. Thanks to them we no longer fall down to the other end of the shed!!! We have a great success ( so far) with the produce we get from the plot - Alot better than last year and the plants seem to be doing so much better. I think this is out best year yet!!!

Here are a few pictures of some of the veg growing, Here are my leeks, I have decided to out toilet rolls at the bottom to try and get a longer white area of leek.

This is our favourite bed - its has the courgettes, carrots, onions, butternet squah, broadbeans and a few flowers. We just like the size, how well the veg is growing and the flowers in the bed are just great.
