A year ago our garden looked like this - you can't even see the veggie patch(es) and you can barely make out the woodshed. Although it looks quite attractive from a distance, close up it was like a jungle down there.
But, after a lot of hard work, the bottom section of the garden is starting to yield results and now it looks like this:
DC discovered a liking for these a couple of evenings ago so the three of us sat at the bottom of the garden eating them straight from the pod; even I, an ardent pea-hater, thought they were yummy. I'm surprised there are any left on the plants.
Squash and/or courgettes - it'll be a nice surprise when the fruits appear!
And a few potato plants - not sure if hubby put these in or if they just appeared as we do have a separate bed just for taters.
As seen here. Complete with chicken. There's a little gap at the front where hubby and DC and his friend Johnny dug up a couple of plants last week; the boys thought it was great fun and ever since DC has been asking 'Can we dig more potatoes?'
At the beginning of this year hubby got ruthless and hacked them all back to ankle height; now they are looking much tidier and are a lot more manageable, although it remains to be seen whether they will bear any fruit after their traumatic haircut.
Things are looking good for pies and crumbles this year!
