With the return of the sunny weather we have been spending a lot of time in the garden. It is our dream to, one day, become self sufficient in the veg department - I think we are getting close, maybe this time next year?
Last year we fought a loosing battle with aphids and this year it looks like the ants will be our biggest enemy. I am very much torn between being organic as far as possible and sustainability. So far we have:
Onions (red and white)
Variety of salad leaves
Quite an impressive list when all written down I think. Last year we tried sweetcorn but it was a massive failure - a little more reading up required me thinks! We also have an asparagus bed on the go but will be another year before we can enjoy any.
I must say the hosepipe ban is rather annoying and I find myself really appreciating the rain!
