Having lived for many years in poky flats with out any outdoor space, it goes without saying how enjoyable it has been for me, Jem and Louie to share in new gardening experiences that are our own, now that we have a lovely south facing garden.
Radish was recommended for an easy, quick first crop, and I agree. Having sown a few seeds a few weeks ago in our new raised beds, we are already the proud nibblers of peppery radish, rocket leaves, and nasturtium flowers.
And to add a gorgeous scent to the table we are picking on an almost daily basis sweet pea flowers. The description ‘cut and come again’, really is accurate.
We, as a family are looking forward to a summer of more delicious fresh home grown crops that look and smell wonderful too.
