Earlier this morning, the penny dropped with regard to pinning blog posts to Pinterest. So, whilst merrily getting on with that, I enjoyed looking through my WordPress files, taking a trip down memory lane and all that.
This brought me to a post from 7 March this year with a photo of the whole garden. You may recall that I recently discovered a photo from about the same time of year three years ago, where the garden looked decidedly empty. However, in early spring the garden wasn’t actually that much different this year either!
In the long run, I hope there will be more to look at in winter than lots of brown. And I don’t mean lots of white. In the meantime, no matter how un-summery this summer has been, I am more than happy to have the current view from my bedroom.
Growing at the moment (ie a definite crop – or almost in some cases): tomatoes, cucumber, mangetout, Jerusalem artichokes, red cabbage, kale, cauliflowers, rhubarb, sweet peppers, various herbs, blueberries, strawberries, apples, crab apples, nasturtiums, marigolds, runner beans, onions, beetroot and Chinese cabbage. Of course, there will be something I’ve missed off the list but that is quite a pleasing assortment of produce.
