Am squealing this morning :) Have just been out to water the garden since yesterday's predicted downpour didn't happen, and...... I'VE GOT POTATOES!!!!! Eeeeeeeee!!!!!!
And yesterday I had to ring my mummy to announce that my rescued 10p B&Q capsicums have produced a pepper!
I am aware that the tradition is you plant things, water them, and generally speaking they grow. But I just find it absolutely amazing that I've managed to do it!! Even if I produce nothing more this year, I'll be pretty happy with that for my first year :) As it happens my tomato plants also have little fruits, and my beans are growing well (although haven't yet flowered); beetroot and spinach seeds have just gone in, so fingers crossed for them too. And I have started a herb garden, which will hopefully develop over the years. Desperately need to get a hoe though and get rid of some weeds, will try to remember to get one this afternoon.
Just having a little chuckle - some of my closest friends have just got back from a single-girls' drinking holiday in Magaluf, but I'm more interested in my veg plot. When did I skip my 20s?!
