Our first attempt at growing some veggies.

Check out our first edible produce of the year!! Brendan promptly took a bite so he's already learning about where our food comes from.

Below is a photo of about one third of the whole vegetable patch. We're trying lots of different things... green and yellow beans, peas, carrots, onions and leeks, cabbage, courgette, butternut squash, aubergine, tomatoes, watermelon, pumpkin, okra and, of course, the radishes.
We've probably grown about three quarters from seed ourselves and the remaining quarter were transplants bought at the market. So far so good, although the first beans we transplanted don't seem to be doing very well.

I'm jealous - all our produce, bar some tiny wild strawberries and one sweetcorn plant have been eaten by slugs.
