We have had a lovely gift from a neighbour of Mr Shoestring’s. He helped him to put together his shiny new rotavator, and in return the neighbour gave him his old one. It works perfectly and will be a great help in digging over and extending the veggie patches for next season.
It pays to be a good neighbour 🙂
This year we grew courgettes, pumpkins, runner and French beans, celeriac, chard, carrots, leeks, parsley, red and blackcurrants, raspberries and strawberries, onions, sprouts (not doing too well these), rhubarb, sweetcorn, tomatoes and peppers.
Next year I would like to add to this some nice salad potatoes, lettuces and perhaps some cucumbers in the greenhouse.
It is so satisfying growing your own food, and saves masses of money. It is hard work though! Still, there is nothing like eating a warm tomato fresh from the greenhouse or corn on the cob that you picked 10 minutes earlier. Absolute heaven!
