You learn something everyday, not sure I'm going to replace potatoes with squash leaves though!

Second day of a weeks holiday in the Lakes, lovely day yesterday in the hills. Trying hard this morning to get 2 Uni age girls ready to go out for the day, fighting a losing battle me thinks!!!

How much....

My first car was a Mk 3 Ford Cortina bought for ??125, it had an 8 track player when I bought it. Find it hard to remember the reg of the car I have now but over 30 years later I can still recall VWC 434L

I bought 2 from Lidl 2 years ago, unnamed variety. The first year I got good pollination but the birds snaffled them all. This year I protected them in a fruit cage and had a bumper crop of large sweet berries. I have them in pots in ericaceous compost.

I have a choice of old fishing jackets and walking gear too, don't like wearing wellies so I wear old walking boots. Lots of outdoor shops do end of line bargains, worth looking out for. I use an online company called Sportpursuit, great range of gear and some good bargains

How do I find a gardener?!

Lots of great advice for free on the internet including this forum. If you're looking for a garden designer I'm sure someone on this site can help if they know what area you're from.
If you're happy to do the graft yourself then its fun building your dream garden yourself.

Are you eating your home grown fruit and veg yet?

Fresh carrots, cabbage, runner beans and sweetcorn. I've got some ghost chillies ready too but scared to try them

First sweetcorn of the year for me, absolutely gorgeous, so nice to pick it straight from the allotment and be eating it 10 mins later! Looks like a bumper crop this year

I grew the ' Staffordshire' collection from Eagle seeds, very impressed, lovely scent and a nice selection of colours .
