Post Update on my new garden
Hi All

Just wanted to pop in and say hi and to show off/big note etc about my wonderful garden.

Last time I mentioned that I had large leaves on my cauliflower and broccoli but no 'meat' Well I am proud to say that I 'did good' and produced some amazing vegetables. Remember this is my first attempt at gardening so I am so so chuffed.

My carrots were a mass of curly, tangled messy, wurly thingy's - but hey they were yummy and I think I have learnt my mistake, in not thinning them out and squashing the root when planting.

Anyway here are a couple of brag pictures

Yumm!
Mongy carrots are the best by the way. Lots of hidden flavour and crunch in the folds.
I had a good yield of triple finger purples not long ago, they roasted great cause all the lamb fat soaked into them!
