40B440 Veggies



Veggies here, Veggies there, Veggies everywhere

It is funny how you set yourself a goal and sometime complete it without realising.

At the end of 2012 I set myself the #40B440 challenges and one of the challenges was to grow 5 different veggies and fruit.

Planning

I had it in my mind that this would be an easy challenge to complete, I would just go to the garden centre and make a conscious decision to buy seeds for five things and grow them. The difficulty would be to keep them alive long enough to have some proof that it was done.

I would like to say I planned the work and then worked the plan, however that was not the case, to use a gardening term it all happened organically.

Organic Challenge

Last night I realised, Veggie – tastic I had done it!

While out watering the garden, I noticed that we have Tomatoes, Aubergines, Chillies, Cucumbers, Courgette, Strawberries, Raspberries and Blueberries.

We will also get apples, and wild blackberries but they were not really grown by us they were already at the house.

The Raspberries, Strawberries and Blueberries were all planted last year but failed to crop this year they are doing really well.

The Chilies were given to us by my sister-in-law whose friend wanted an experiment of crops grown in the south compared the Manchester.

The other Veggies were given to us by my inlaws who always have a wonderful garden of flowers and crops.

Bumper Crop

I noticed that I had completed the challenged because everything is starting to produce. I have always done well with Chilies but this year we have a really good crop of raspberries and strawberries and the Tomatoes.

It is my first year growing Aubergines and we do have one on the plant so we will see what they are like.
