growing vegetables take two: week 2

I truly suck at gardening. When I attempted it last year I was tragic: bought all the kit (yes, you heard, kit), paid heaps of attention for the first three weeks, got no return and gave up on the whole project.
So this year the pots that I once loved so much have sat getting weathered, overgrown, vandalised (oh yeah, rubbish in them, footprint in one!), but mostly ignored. Until Mum arrived.

growing vegetables: week 1

When I was back home in June we had a few lunches with lettuce picked from the garden that Mum had grown from seed. I was SO impressed. And they tasted delicious.

Here at home #2 – wicked Manly pad – I don’t exactly have the same, er, infrastructure and facilities as Mum but I thought I’d give it a go anyway… I’d seen Flower Power when I’d been out on my bike and liked the look of it so I popped there and it was a good choice! Loads of stuff, and most importantly, nice, friendly staff …
