Growing Our Own Part 1
Two long plots and maybe getting a third. Peas growing in first plot and we're going to put down pumpkins in the second plot but have to wait until June to do that.
Peas are going good, it is a great feeling seeing the food you've sown coming to life. To the left of the peas are some yellow beetroots and red beetroots on the right side, apparently the beetroots like shade so planting them next to the peas will provide them with nice shade when the peas grow higher. I love the idea of different plants helping other plants, we also planted onions with our carrots to repel the bugs that eat carrots and we also planted some marigolds to attract bees to pollinate everything and to put in our back garden to repel midges.
We've also planted onions, sunflowers and baby potatoes.
We plan on planting rooster potatoes, lots of pumpkins, courgette, cucumber, corn, peppers and a blueberry bush.
We are so lucky to have this through my husbands work, his boss lets any employee have a plot on his farm if they want it. Sadly not too many have shown an interest but it means we've been allowed a second and hopefully even a third plot. Neither me nor my husband are any good with gardening so this is a great opportunity to learn especially as there is a lady who works there and she helps us and shows us what to do. The plan is to learn on this farm while we sort out the mess of a garden we have and then grow out our own back and hopefully get chickens 🐔
It is also very beautiful at this farm.
