I have never been a keen gardener and so when Mud decided that, due to time constraints, it was time I took over the growing of the vegetables, my heart sank and I had visions of failed crops left, right and centre. Nowadays I not only look after our own vegetable garden but I also oversee the Gardening Club and Vegetable Plot at the school our 2 youngest girls attend.
Who would have thought? Certainly not me but I love it and I get immense satisfaction when we sit down to a meal with homegrown vegetables on the plates 🙂As a novice gardener, I often didn’t have a clue what specific seedlings would look like and it was sometimes difficult to know whether what I was looking at, had actually grown from a seed I had sown, or if it was from a rogue seed, especially with seeds sown directly into the vegetable beds. So I have now added a new category ‘seed to seedling’ in which I hope to record the time between seed and seedling, from the first sowing of each crop this year (2013) and, where possible, photos of what the seedlings actually look like. I hope this proves helpful.
