Things are growing :widesmile:

I didn't really realise how much till I looked back at this thread! The weeds are taking over my strawberry and onion bit you can hardly see them oops.

The spinach has gone crazy with this sunny/ rainy weather.

I shouldve thinned them more. We ve been picking it when we would like to eat it but I m thinking I might have to pick some to freeze it.

Oh no I just typed loads and forgot to press submit and now I've lost it, grr!
I wrote it ages ago and have forgotten what I wrote.

I think I wrote that once you be rested after being poorly I m sure it won't take long to dig over a small area and plant something up. I d go for courgettes as they are pretty easy to grow ( as long as the snails don't get them! ) and quite satisfying to see them full a spot quite quickly. You don t need to worry too much about weeding thoroughly either.
i suppose it will depend what is for sale locally. It will probably be best to buy plants now rather than seed for summer crops. Or if you're going for seeds you could start them off now in pots so they are ready for planting out when you've got space. :thumbsup:

Sounds like you need a rest this week though ;)

Image Woah! 10 days growth!

Unfortunately the weeds grow just as fast around the veggies and garden too!
I did remove lots of the weeds after taking the photo, then forgot to take another.
