Hi guys, hope this is the right place. My MiL bought me a veggie patch for my b'day, and i'm not really sure where to start. I've never grown anything before, and everything I get close to seems to die. Is this the best time to start planting stuff, or should I wait for it to be a bit cooler?
It comes with:
Thanks for the warm welcome Bekkie
I mostly like radishes, mostly. And peas. I think Nando's macho peas are my favourite thing in the world. But I don't have peas, so not sure while we're talking about peas, lol.
I do like baby carrots, so will give them a go.
What about the radishes?
Radishes are really quick to grow so only do a few seeds at a time and every other week. They should be ready to eat 4 weeks after sowing
Thanks for your help guys!
Haha, bekkie. Maybe I can take you there one day?
You don't think they sell food do you bekkie.
Do you not eat any meat, bekkie? Not even pork? The radish of all the meats.
It's a shame there isn't enough time for you to grow cucumber. I have so many in my greenhouse at the moment that I really don't know what to do with them.
@Eglantine, I find they're good for killing slugs.
It seems a bit cruel (and a waste) to cosh slugs with cucumbers
Sorry it was a bad joke to get back at bekkie for blowing me out.
Gr8 advice on here!
I was advised by a friend of mine to use slices of radish instead of cucumbers as treatment for my eyes. They were very stingy. This was not good advice.
That sounds like terrible advice
Any thoughts on the biodegradable coconut coir eco-pots? What are they, for a start?
Aren't they just for helping seedlings grow? What do they look like? Are they made from real coconuts?
'The radish of all the meats'
You can plant seeds in the eco pots and when they grow you just plant the eco pots into the garden.
