Growing local

I thought I would share a couple of photos from my fledgling garden - I'm a complete novice but have had some small successes. Growing up all of the emphasis was on learning computers and similar skills rather than the hands on side, so I really am starting from level 0 (I had no idea most plants are meant to, you know, die).

I look forward to learning as much as possible and hopefully getting along to some visits!

The photos are my first potential pumpkin baby, some flowers, a sweet potato vine that since has been removed as it got a little too out of control, and my beloved Thai basil in flower. Will post them shortly!

You'll find you learn very quickly.

Glad to see you’ve now”got the bug”.   It is amazing what you can end up doing to your garden and how passionate you can become.  If anyone told my 10 urs ago what I’d be doing in my garden right now, I’d have laughed in their face.  Enjoy

We can be novices together Sid.  Until this year, I was the 'you can grow it? I can kill it' person.  Decided to get serious this year and so far, it's been so much fun.  Looking forward to checking out your photos.

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.
