I am an addict...

Yep, I am officially addicted to my garden, from a total novice a year or two ago growing a few tomatoes I now have a very busy little garden growing LOADS image

Went out over the weekend and my local nursery and turns out they were selling everything buy one get another free, so I had to spend!

Bought some courgettes, leeks, sweetcorn, and basket of fire chillies, I have filled every nook and cranny there is now.

Got my first ever cucumber yesterday too, cut from the plant and we had half sat there, lovely and not bitter which I was very pleased with.

Really been bitten by this gardening bug and enjoying every minute of it image

    LB, me too, it is addictive isn't it image I love growing my own veg and yesterday we had spuds for the first time. I just need to learn not get to get so disheartened when things go wrong......I need to realise it's not personal and these things happen image Apart from that I love it image

    KEF, my first one but you're right was lovely, actually tasted as it should and nothing sprayed on from mass produced varieties.

    Orchid Lady, I never let it bother me if things go wrong, as an example even though I had onions in same bed, one half of them just didn't take very well where as the other half did, but I cleared the bad half as felt was a waste of half my bed and planted the leeks I bought in there.

    When I think back to few years back when I would never have watched Gardeners World now I really enjoy it and the garden, I find it very calming and good for the soul.

    And my list of veg is growing by the day, do I now count as an amateur rather then novice? lol
