Having a garden is a god-send. I love having mine as it takes me away from the computer and out of the house for a couple of hours or so. I will be doing some work on it soon. Layout wise, I will not change anything at all, I will only uproot and get rid of plants that are not “useful”. For me it is maximising the usefulness of my outside space. And it all depends on how you want to use your garden. For me, I want to have things I can eat in my garden 🙂
I love gardening but being a daughter of a fisherman, I am not that knowledgable about garden plants. I had to “google” them, especially those that I love to eat. I love the process from planting until the harvest. My favourite though, is tending and watching the plants grow.
I love to use fresh herbs in my cooking from the parsley, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and bay leaves. At 80p per 20 grams of rosemary and £1.20 of the dried ones it does help a little bit.
Planting from seeds
Potatoes in a bucket, planted mid April.
Yesterday, I harvested about 2.6 kilos from the two “potato buckets” the second batch should be ready by October. Yay!
