This photo was taken a few weeks after we moved here after the weeds were cleared, this is the bed I have been using to grow a few edibles in the last few years.
This year we filled it with potatoes, courgettes and some tomatoes, the potatoes have been great, the courgettes as always have been good, but the tomatoes were no good at all, I have only picked 2 or 3, they ended up with the blight disease.
Things we have grown this year.
Apples, raspberries, blackcurrants, salad leaves, peppers, garlic, herbs, potatoes and tomatoes,courgettes, spinach, and there is now what we think is going to be pumpkin or butternut squash, growing away (self seeded).
We made a decision, we are not growing any winter veg in here, this space is being turned into something else over the next few weeks, into something we had when we had our own house, something we are all interested in, I shall talk more about it when it begins.
I still have the greenhouse and wherever we end up when we move again, I may still do a bit of growing, things like salad leaves, peppers, tomatoes, etc are easily grown in pots. But if like now we are so close to the supermarkets I am not sure?
Today was disappointing for vegetables, but I can still get some cheap ones in the week.
Today's yellow sticker shop.
Apples, melon, and avocado's - 9p each.
We have started to pick the larger apples from our own tree this week as well.
Berries 19p, yes I was naughty I know Blackberries are free on the hedgerows at the moment.
We have been picking our own raspberries, we get a large handful daily, they have done extremely well.
And just a few other things.
Courgettes picked from the garden this week.
But I could have bought big bagfuls for only 9p.
So you see my dilemma, grow your own, or buy the yellow stickers?
I think I am favouring the yellow stickers.
