This is my vegetable patch which I look after everyday weeding and watering.

I had a free packet of Joules carrot seeds with my Joules magazine. I pulled one of the carrots out to see how they were growing. This one is looking good.

My first crop of my tasty carrots. This was enough for three meals.

What a lovely colour, wow. There are plenty more where these came from.

Guess what I found hiding in the runner beans? (Click on pic)

  1. Hello - I've just been enjoying your blog - what lovely treasures in your previous posts, and what a gorgeous little bluetit fledgeling! Those carrots are perfect. Goodness, whenever we've grown them they've looked gnarled, sad and very small.

    BTW, I live only mile from the Suffolk border - yoo hoo!

  2. Hi Emma
