How does my garden grow!

When I took this photo I didn't realise there were several little creatures crawling around the petals.
Tulips are very pretty but they don't stay in bloom for very long. These are almost over, but they gave the garden a lovely splash of colour.
Embee has just built this planter to grow a few vegetables. He's going to start with broccoli and broad beans, can't think why it wasn't carrots.

You're better off with broccoli and broad beans, it's easier to buy good looking carrots than grow them, specially with freshly fertilised soil.

maybe it isn't deep enough for carrots -- or does it have a bottom?

We won't have tulips for another few weeks. The daffodils aren't even out yet.

Asha I don't think we will be able to produce anything like the amount you do. We have so little space.

WT I was reading a newspaper article yesterday that said it's not worth dabbling (like this) as it doesn't produce enough and is not cost effective-which is probably right.

Pamela it's just I love my raw carrots. I buy a bag of organic ones most weeks.

AC we are a bit ahead of you then.

Steffi Beccy is coming just overnight next Monday.

Marmie wish I lived nearer you I could have your leftovers to plant LOL.

Raised beds are a perfect way to have a little garden. How about lettuce or spinach?

Nice little garden. Ours is raised like that, too. (Will be at least another month before we plant here.) Good luck with your plants!

Those flowers are beautiful! We are late on getting our garden started. I want to plant a lot of new flowers in the yard this year, but no time. I'm playing on the computer for the 1st time in a week and I have so much to do!
