Hi and progress report
« on: June 18, 2006, 21:47 »
Just wanted to say it seems that a load have people have recently joined and said hi, I havent posted to all of you but would like to take the opportunity to welcome you here as I was.

I've been 'lottying' since march this year and have had countless little dramas, tons of questions (the best so far being "do 'Dwarf'  beans grow very big?") and a huge learning curve.

Today I went over the lottie and used my new hoe for the 1st time and wished I'd bought one sooner.  I watered everything (thanks to the purchase of 2 x 10 litre watering cans, one in each hand as i cross sided to side).  then i picked broad beans, dug a lettuce, took up a few potatoe plants, thinned the carrots keeping them for the salad and cut some swiss chard.  I added the whole lot to some baked chicken breast and i'm sitting here completely stuffed, feeling rather proud :)

Good on yer twhincup.  Its lovely isn't it, sitting there eating your own food?  We had our own salad leaves and spring onions in our dinner tonight and last night, and Friday night I cooked my VERY first ever courgette.  Broad beans have doubled in size I think since yesterday, so they won't be long and most of my tomatoes and potatoes are flowering!!

My toms (Roma) are now getting very large, both plants and fruit.  I am going to have a go at sundrying them.  Can´t wait to get my garden and start growing stuff properly instead of ´pretending´on a patio! :D

Just read your email Oliveview, will email you later tonight.  You could do iwth a little sack barrow or something to transport your big pots, just bump it down the stairs gently, making sure its Jim at the lower end and not you!!!! lol
