Started with two Capsicum( bell peper)plants. One died at a neighbours despite having a fabulous pepper on it. Guess it did not take well to the new environment. One has survived and seems to be producing flowers.
So keen to have it survive. Job stress high so I want my plants to thrive and grow. 16 months ago
Since I set this objective I’ve created a vegetable patch and grown vegetables on it for two seasons. The first year was very good with great onions and runner beans, plus a few others. The second year I lost interest a little and grew mainly onions and potatoes, which didnt do too well – but the weather here in the UK has not been great. 22 months ago
We spent the whole summer reclaiming a garden from the back yard. We worked a lot of hours, and preserved and ate a lot of things that we grew. It felt good, but in the end I think it might have been just as well to buy fresh vegetables at the farmer’s market. The time and money it cost didn’t really bring me a reciprocal amount of joy. Most of my yard was taken up, and I always was yelling at the dogs to be careful. And I couldn’t play as much because there was always something to be done. I think next year I am leaving this one to the professionals. 2 years ago
