We are mainly growing in pots this year as we may have to dig up our front garden to add a new overflow pipe from the cellar but that's only if the companies we have contacted to do the work actually get back to us *end rant* Garlic and onions are doing well so far.
We do have some things in the ground though including a brand new rhubarb plant, a gooseberry bush that looks more like a dead twig and a tayberry bush which is looking good so far. And it's only when I look at these pictures that I realise how stony my front garden really is!
Tara and I decided to plant some seeds straight outside and see what happened - these are beetroot and radish. Tara is especially excited about the radishes as she eats them for England!
I also potted a load of seeds that I hope will sprout inside and then they can be transferred to pots etc outside. Notice the recycled pots (I've been saving them for months!) We do have a greenhouse but because of the awful weather, we have managed to put the sides together but haven't yet put it up. We need it dry and warm enough for the concrete to set so I'm sure it will be up and ready for next year :) The things we are growing here include runner beans, basil, celery, strawberries, leeks, courgette, carrots, spinach and pea!
Do you garden? What works well where you live? Any tips for a novice gardener?
