Update on our veg project.

Not exactly what we had been hoping. In fact, a complete disappointment.
Our onions rotted in the soil, as did our garlic, and the dwarf green beans were almost invisible, producing a yield of a mere dozen which didn’t cook at all well and were better raw chopped up in a salad.

Our tomato plant was lazy.
Despite a show of cute little flowers, the top snapped off and the green tomato thereon is still green.
our tomatoJust one large tomato turned red, and there are only two others on the vine.
I picked and used it on our last day, and it was………………. dull.
Nothing like the tasty Moneymakers we had grown in the cottage veg plot.

Next year, we are going to revert to those and get them going early in the bow.
We will also be trying our hand at spring onions and potatoes.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Oh dear – disappointing indeed after all that work and the waiting! 🙂

  2. We have had arid conditions in the eastern US, the daily watering has been a must. Will be anxious to see what evolves…lots of green tomatoes on the vine, no red yet ! Fingers crossed. 💖
