Excitement. We are now total gardeners. Like pretty much everyone else in the history of ‘green is the new black’ but who cares. We have vegetables. That we
neglected nurtured ourselves. There are tomato plants, capsicum, a squillion types of lettuce (or three… but who’s counting?), beans, peas (sorta), spinach, rhubarb, celery, and spring onions.
Or that my tomato plants were trapped for so long in pots during the move that they all sorta grafted into one giant tomato bush… well… actually they are all acting like total siblings and doing their darnedest to grow as far away from each other as possible. Except they are all entwined at the roots so their attempts are futile and they just end up looking a bit hunched over. Oops.
And look what else comes with being retardo gardeners – accidental potatoes! The former dumping pile from the people who last lived here (I think?) has become a potato patch. Awesome. We also have another one closer to the house which will be good to break up the soil so we can do something fun with it later.
I think we’re not doing too bad for total amateurs. Weeeeeee.
