We are currently between houses so we find ourselves living with Richard’s Mum & Dad, and we are likely to be here over the summer. To help out whilst we are here we have offered to take on the veg patch. Having lived in a flat with only a tiny balcony it is very exciting to have some outside space to get our hands dirty in.
We have both had veg patches previously but that has been quite a few years ago so we are taking it simple this year, but we are already planning what we would do in future years.
This year, in the veg patch we will be growing the following:
- Lettuce ‘Little Gem’
- Mangetout ‘Delikata’
- French Beans ‘Sultana’
- Courgette ‘Early Gem’
- Carrots ‘St Valery’
- Potato ‘Vivaldi’ and ‘Nicola’
- Onions – Various Varieties
and in the greenhouse we will be giving the following a go:
- Tomatoes ‘Tomatoberry’ and ‘Big Boy’
- Cucumber ‘Telegraph improved’
- Aubergine ‘F1 Scorpio’
- Chilli Pepper ‘Cherry Bomb’
- Sweet Peppers ‘Jingle Bells’ & ‘Italian Long Sweet’
In addition to the fruit and veg we are going to give a cut flower patch a go, we’ll update on the another time as it is still in the final planning stages.
I am sure there will be plenty of updates so check back and see how we are getting on, and if you have any questions or suggestions please let us know in the comments below.
