If you're happy and you know it

Posted on 9:26 PM by merrilymerrily

Our little patch is rapidly greening up. I decided on a more haphazard planting of the veg- on Jackie French's recommendation (so the plants can hide from pests) but now see the benefit of nice neat rows. Getting a bit of blogger envy when I see posts like sooz' with big fat tomatoes and full heads of lettuce but gardening is an exercise in patience- you can't MAKE plants grow faster. Currently on the go in the main patch are roma tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, basil (as yet unmunched- YAY!), 3 kinds of potatoes (which I HOPE I am doing the right thing with) capsicums, lemon balm, continental parsely, broadbeans, silverbeet (Still!) and hopefully tomorrow some lettuce.

Peas! They are the only plant I've ever managed to grow, even with my black thumbs and complete contempt for garden maintenance :)
