After a fair bit of nagging, my husband finally relented and has allowed me to experiment and grow a few vegetables in my urban garden.
Now, to be fair to my husband, I am known for my wild ideas about the garden that I never follow through. And I always leave him to clear up the mess. So this is why I had to prove to him that I could be responsible and not cause him yet more grief, garden-wise.
I've planted a few lettuces, parsley, tomatoes, spinach, celery and two cucumber plants. I've had my first harvest of lettuce- three leaves - don't laugh, it was enough for one salad!
But sadly, the cucumbers have come to grief.
The other success story is that we have made our own compost and put it around the tomatoes and roses. But the dog has eaten a lot of it, so I am not sure what good it has been!
What are you most successful at growing - flowers, vegetables or weeds?
