This year we've had a few garden success's and failures, last week we had a comically epic garden fail, to blame - the hens. Our little spud/cabbage patch is tucked away behind the garage which means it doesn't get the best sun but is easy to shut off from the hens. Or so we thought, the crafty wee feckers got in and totally annihilated every single plant!!! They looked so cute and innocent when I caught them that I had to laugh, I mean look at their wee faces who could be mad :)
So we just left them to it (may as well at this point!) and dug them all up the next day. It was quite a disappointment since most of the spuds were literally grape size, still super tasty though!
Our garden success to report is our peas, they rocked! We didn't plant that many either, maybe a square meter if you put the 3 patches together and the batch we picked lasted 3 meals (big pea portions) we were really happy with them :)
This year for the amount of time spent I think our garden has provided us really well with fresh veg, the main gardening months here (the last 3 months) I've slept practically every spare minute I've had so any gardening has really been all Al and he's done really well to keep it going. We've kept to our no lettuce year promise (buy no lettuce at all for 2012 - grow all our own) and we've started no bread year too, so far about 2 months with baking all our own :)
Speaking of bread I actually must go make some now for lunches tomorrow...
