In the kitchen garden . . .
. . . so far this year, the strawberries are looking promising . . .
. . . and the shallots . . .
. . . one of the blueberry bushes (the other two not doing so well) . .
. . . a nice little row of peas . . .
The focus is generally on stuff that is expensive or hard to come by in the shops. So though DH is always keen to grow the perfect carrot, and keeps trying, the main effort goes into things like peas, runner beans, soft fruit, spring cabbage, purple sprouting broccoli / brocolli / broccolli (spelling???) Our front garden conversion into growing beds instead of unused lawn is working well for us.
