 Home grown and home carved. Quite pleased with myself. And, the seeds were lovely roasted and the innards made a delicious soup. All for the price of a pack of seeds.

Excellent value for money

Are you an artist by any chance?

Love yours, Andrew K - is it on a windowsill or outside?  Reminds me I will have to get some in - not been as good as you at growing them myself

Andrew no I'm not an artist can't draw for toffee my hubby is an engineer and draws some although he does look on the internet for inspiration!!

Looks quite scary.

I live on a narrowboat.

It's actually perched ontop of the coal bunker in the cratch of the boat. As I write this I feel as though I am being watched through the doors!

Seems to look better as it gets darker!

It's the front end of a narrowboat (bow).

The photos show the cratch area with/without a canopy. I grew tomatos 2 years ago before I got myself an allotment

No we don't as the marina where we are is quite a distance from the nearest town and most kids are lazy

Brilliant with the toms Andrew!
