First Find your Veg Plot

We needed potatoes tonight, and the first of the earlies were likely to be ready. There was just one problem …

I’ve been neglecting the veg plot recently, it’s safe to say. There’s just too much other garden to be getting on with, not to mention all the other things I’ve been doing and so I’ve been letting the hares keep on top of the weeding, without, it must be said, a great deal of success.

Fortunately, most of what’s in the plot this year is stuff that can just get on with things themselves, like broad beans

And potatoes of course.

First crop of new potatoes. Very satisfying

Mental note to self: next year, plant the earlies right by the entrance to the plot, instead of deep in the back corner.

By tradition, all home grown veg is nothing less than delicious.

And these were no exception.

    I am envious. My potatoes are just beginning to grow! Even radishes have not formed!

    @Anon – we have several hares who seem to treat the garden as their personal fiefdom but they are currently more interested in each other than eating the weeds or the veg
    @Elizabeth – I think you need a polytunnel!
