Proud !


My first veggie bounty from the garden !

There comes a time in everyone's life where they must embrace their inner-ancestor/farmer/gardener and just plant some seeds!

And I have grown something - and it's edible! Yay me!

I am so proud, I can't tell you - hee hee.

In the meantime, my cucumbers are a mass of leaves, which have had a few flowers, and there is no way they will have time to do cucumbery things in the last couple of weeks of this season. It's likely to get cold and/or frosty within a month.
Oh well - wait and see - and learn to try and get in earlier next year.

We have such a short growing season, I'm delighted with any bounty at all.

  2. Well done you - that stuff looks edible...just kidding, they look wonderful. There is something satisfying about growing your own, isn't there?
