Grow herbs if you can't grow any thing else.

Growing as many of my own fruit and vegetables  is a goal of mine. Current living arrangements mean that isn't possible. But there is no excuse for not having herbs at least!
So despite my neglect and the extremely strange weather.
I've managed to grow chives.

They might be the spring onions.

And my old favourite, parsley.

I've also got spring onions that have been growing for a very long time, and a potato plant grew from an old discarded potato and I got one decent sized potato so far. My daughter was impressed and said "Free potato. Mum we got a free potato". That pretty much sums it up, minus the fertiliser and mulch and whatever good gardeners (not me) put in their garden, it's free food! That's pretty awesome.


  1. I just started growing my own herbs (and vegetables) so it's encouraging to see those who do it successfully. Enjoy your crop! :)

    This Good Life

  2. My success is through accident, not good management!
