As I mentioned last Tuesday My Sunflowers are coming along nicely, and I also have some Runner Bean plants. There's not really any change in the Sunflowers and Runner Beans, though the bean plants are a bit bigger, and so are many of the Sunflowers. Because of this I haven't bothered to get new photos done for you.
What I have done, however, is brought and planted Lavender, Carrot and Tomato seeds. I brought the seeds on Wednesday, and planted them over the weekend. Well, I planted all the Lavender seeds anyway. I only planted about half the carrot and tomato seeds. And, no, I don't have photos of them to share. Why? Because there's nothing to see yet. I will, however, get someone to take photos when - or if - they grow.
I'm growing the Sunflowers because I had them for Easter. I'm growing the Lavender because I like Lavender. But I'm growing the beans, carrots and tomatoes because I wanted to try and grow some of my own food. If I have success with these, I might try growing some other food items in the future.
So far so good. I haven't killed any plants or flowers yet anyway, so that's a good start. :)
Mam's growing some food items too. I'm going to let her do her own blog about the items she's growing though. All I'll tell you is that they're different from mine. The idea being that - providing we have at least a few items grow - we can swap produce when the time comes.
My Grandma is also growing some food items (she's mentioned them on her blog several times). We haven't arranged a produce swap with my Grandma though. Nothing personal, it's just that Mam and I live within a few miles of each other, where as Grandma is further away. Meaning that it's easier for mam and I to swap produce than it is for us to swap with Grandma. Which is a shame really, because my Grandma is growing potatoes, and we could use some of those, since potatoes are something neither of us has attempted this year.
That's all on this topic for now. I'll post more when there's more to say.
