I’ve just added this sticker to my sidebar having spotted it on Barbara’s blog (have a look at her beautiful pictures of veggies and chickens by the way) as it made me smile. I like the idea of digging for victory in this relatively peaceful time.
What will the gardeners up and down the country have triumphed against exactly when we stagger into the kitchen with a bucket of homegrown spuds? I have no idea, but it’s a lovely thought that I am growing my own with ‘victory’ in mind.
It is so exciting seeing vegetables growing in the garden. As you know, I was deeply moved when the first seedlings appeared in tiny pots back in February, so I’m sure you can imagine the scene in my garden yesterday when I spotted this.
A small but perfectly formed courgette! My cup overfloweth. I was casting around the garden for somebody to point this out to, but Him Indoors is ensconced in a stag do in Southampton at the moment, the neighbours seem blissfully disinterested, and Wilb just looked at me pityingly. So I turn to you, dear reader, to share this intimate moment with me.
