Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 100: The first harvest, the cucumber frame and buried treasure!

The first harvest is in! It’s always such an exciting time to lift the first harvest of the new season……today it was the garlic and boy-oh-boy did it smell good as I was lifting it. It was also a day for getting the last structure up and a final bit of bed prep……..and my fork prong found some buried treasure…..

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 92: Water Butt and hanging out with Graham.

Some jobs are easier with two pairs of hands……….if the second pair of hands belong to your best mate even better. Hanging out with Graham there’s always plenty of banter and laughter…….the jobs get done and it doesn’t feel like work at all. I’m delighted to have my first water butt installed (I plan to have many more when finances allow) – harvesting rain water should be a priority for us all………..as should laughing and spending time with good friends.SAM_1956
