Mmmm Broccoli boiled, fried, steamed is delicious and something I eat weekly. Would be lovely to grow my own and for June decided to give it a go! Here are some photos and updates from January Lettuce Leaves.
Broccoli from my local garden centre
Veg crate filled with compost and watered
Ive been keen to try organic food for growing veg and discovered bonemeal which has been scattered on top and pressed into compost with a fork. I then rewatered the compost and then sowed the seeds 13mm deep 4 cm apart.
Now comes the wait! Would love the broccoli to grow well, if it does would love to plant out a large plot next year. Mmmmmmm broccoli and stilton soup would be delicious to make.
In January I tried to grow Lettuce Leaves. After a few attempts there was some growth that I was pleased to find resembled lettuce.
Yaaaaaaaaaay! Really happy that they managed to grow.
Here is my first dish with lettuce leaves from my garden! Bertie cooked some lovely chicken which we added to goats cheese salad.
The chill and garlic planted in Feburary and March is looking good and excited to share with you in the future once they are ready! Be lovely to hear if you are gardening this year and how your getting on ♥ RoseBudAnnie .
