This is my garden so far veg wise, runner and french beans, some nadine spuds in the bag and loads of onions i got for free from one of my customers who owns a garden centre. Oregano grows freely and still indoors to go out is thyme, chives, basil and rosemary.

PICS

a huge thankyou to you lovely msers for all your advice and encouragement.

    76 views and not one of 'em has bothered to thank you!:(

    Well, on behalf of the other 75, I'd like to say well done, not only for starting to grow some of your food, but for taking the time to share. I don't do Facebook, but have to say those pics loaded faster than any I've seen on here. :)

    I too didn't want to read and run. Congrats Deb on your start. I got an allotment last month and I too hope to be growing the majority of my veg over the next 12 months. Missed a lot of things already this year but there is so much more I can experiment with whilst getting the lottie ready. You have inspired me to take some pics and get them posted!!!!

    Hi,

    I'm not allowed on facebook at work but will come back tonight to see how you have got on. I'm a first time 'proper' grower this year and always like seeing how everyone else has done things as I may steal a few ideas ;)

    Looking good. I always like looking at pics of other peoples veg gardening.
    I am playing all of the right notes just not necessarily in the right order :D.

    Looks good! Are they leeks you have got in or spring onions?

    Me Too:)

    Great Pics and some good ideas - I keep forgetting to use some pots for carrots and leeks.

    Got back in tonight to find half my re-potted plugs dead as I had forgotten to water the greenhouse this morning:( Also a couple of capsicum plants and one of my courgette plants is looking iffy - so cross with myself:mad:

    I too hang my head in shame - I forgot to tend to the mini greenhouse I have in the back garden before I went out to do the weekly shop early this morning - poor poor plants :-O. I forgot to even open the door!!! They are all now in the shade having had a cool bath. Keep your fingers crossed.
