Our first foray into growing edible things has proved a great success. We haven’t bought tomatoes or chillies since August. My husband seems to think it is easy – but then I guess he planted the seeds and has been harvesting – he seemed to miss the bit in the middle, transplanting, re-potting, feeding and watering.
The fridge has three different types of chilli chutney, we have chillies drying in the airing cupboard ready to be made into chilli flakes and the plants are still overflowing with produce. You should see the size of some of the chillies!
The romantic in me has thought of turning more of the garden into a planting zone, but then with my recent hernia is this a good idea? I’ll only get upset if I have a weedy patch and can’t dig it over. Also, do I really need any more distractions from my writing?
