Update from the Plot

I've just got back from a couple of hours down the plot and it was lovely. I'm completely knackered and stung both arms on stinging nettles but it was worth it. There was loads growing and I was able to harvest a lettuce and loads of raspberries :)

By request of my mum here are some pics from the plot :)



Something had been having a good nibble of one of our lettuces so I figured we'd better getting eating them too.


Only about half the sweetcorn I planted survived and they are all looking a bit small, but I'm sure they'll be fine. I might try planting them in regular pots next year instead of peat pots to see if that's were the problem is.



And courgettes

We also have tomatoes and chillis growing at home so it won't be long before we're nomming loads of tasty dinners :)


  1. Hi, lovely to have you as a new follower. My hubby has recently planted a veg plot and its not looking bad considering it was a pile of junk when we moved into our cottage renovation about 10 weeks ago. Looking at your pics reminds me I would love to try and grow some fruit xx

  2. So nice to have you following :) I loved your blog.
