Ha nice Dave! She's cute. Wish I had time for exercising my green thumb, perhaps one day.

Wonderful project your wife is running, Dave.

Made a bit of a start on the garden last week, dug over some of the planters, ready for manure.
We decided to remove the Raspberries and Strawberries, as they weren't producing much fruit,
which is disappointing. However it's gonna be a late start this year due to all the bad weather >:(

Last year I kept an excel sheet of all the vegetables and fruit picked in the garden and in monetary
terms the garden was worth approximately £700/$1000. So not only did it provide much joy as a pastime/hobby
it was worth it financially :)

I may soon have a place with a bit of land where I can grow a few things. Mostly I just want to grow basic herbs which can be expensive to get fresh here.

We've had some decent weather the past few days, so I've been able to do a second dig of the planters.
Weather permitting we'll be planting potatoes and onions next week. It's late but we're getting there :)

No garden this year, as we will probably be moving this summer.  I expect to have glorious pics next year.
