Garden update August 2013

Hubby and I are keen gardeners.   However,  for the last two summers, our garden has been under the sole care of Hubby.   I was pregnant last summer and found it hard to be on my hands and knees for too long.  This year, winter lasted far too long, as did my post-partum joint aches!  In any case, the garden and veggie plot have flourished under Hubby’s care.

Yesterday, we harvested baby carrots and shallots and a solo blueberry.

Well done, Hubby.   In anticipation of another long winter, we’ll have to get our gardening caps on this autumn to plan seedlings and flower bulbs for next summer!
