So glad I planted veg this year, saving me a lot of money on food.
We fight over who’s going out to pick what for tea, have a sneaky munch up the garden on a French bean or five…

I have so many of your drawings to catch up on! Working full-time doesn’t leave much time for the simple pleasures, like leisurely perusing my favourite blogs or drawing cute pictures.
We just moved and I already have a nice patio herb-garden. As soon as we buy our own place I am putting in a vegie garden – nothing better (or more satisfying) than picking your own produce and eating it that day.
Lovely to see you here too, nothing like herbs to liven up your food. Wish I could grow coriander all year round, it’s my favourite.
Can’t beat what you grow yourself.
Unfortunately, this year a moose jumped our fence and decided to eat half our cabbages, the broccoli, AND an entire row of peas!
Now THAT’S One to draw!
We are ‘suffering’ from a glut of runner (string?) beans, following a snowstorm of mangetout peas. The freezer’s full, we eat mounds every night and so do our friends! I still love ‘em, though. The beetroot are also coming on a treat, and the onions are huge.
I’m a bean – a- holic too, my little locusts help us manage our glut, I can always send them over to eat your surplus
I envy you! We planted all kinds last year, with visions of living off the land, and they yielded a couple of minute carrots and some spring onions. It cost us more than we’d have paid in the shops for ten times as much.
Dont give up, that happened first year t to me too. I still cant grow carrots as something always eats them…..can’t figure out what, mind.
