Veg garden


For ages my daughter has wanted to grow some veg, so after i removed the rubble from the rough part between garage and shed and dug it over (supposed to be her garden mind!), we went off to the garden centre to see what we could get, bearing in mind i have never grown veg apart from tomatoes oh and i had a go at potatoes in a bag last year.
this is what we came home with, i left her to it just suggested that melons wouldn’t grow outside very well or peppers (well thats what it said on the label).

runner beans, beetroot (Sarahs favourite, not the variety my daughters name lol) Mangetout (she thought they were peas, well they are but you know what i mean!) and carrot seeds, plus some Growmore for the garden etc.,
She has never planted a plant before but wanted it to be her project so i did one to show her then left her too it, its a bit messy but all her own work.

I’ll wait and see if the novelty wears off and i end up doing it!!! ;)

I do hope things grow well for your daughter (with perhaps a bit of help from Mum!). Nothing tastes better than home grown veg :)

Bless her, I hope they do well for her and that she keeps interested in her project, it will be good and also helpful for you, you might lose a bit more garden space to her though......
