Inspired by the likes of Wendle, Geodyne and OJ, I've started to grow my own.

More Veg are a great little seed company, who sell small quantities of seed at really low prices

The Sting

(viewed 807 times)
I haven't posted for a while. The veggies have been doing great, spent some time outside last night pottering.
Before I could take pics, a bee decided to fight back.
A bit of a scare, four hours in casualty, shedloads of piriton and steroids later, I can now declare gardening a dangerous pursuit.
Normal service will be restored when I get my nerve back

I obviously didn't clear the bed stringently enough, blummin' bulbs are springing up everywhere

Bought-in seedlings from Plants by Post, potted on as soon as they arrived.

Tumbler tomatoes, Shirley tomatoes and assorted chilli peppers.
