Look what we grew...

We've taken a bit of mum and dad's garden over for a veggie plot so that we can eat the fruits (well, ok, the veggies) of our labour. It's not a huge plot in the scheme of the size of mum and dad's garden and how much dad grew when we were kids, but it'll provide enough food for mum and dad and us to enjoy.

Mum and dad were away at the weekend, so I went down to do some weeding and to liberate some veggies for dinner and came back with these...

There were more than 3 pea pods, honest! But I LOVE raw peas straight from the pod so I snaffled them ;-)

Not only did I come home with loads of taters, I got carrots, peas, radishes and 2 HUGE courgettes too! (these'll be used in some yummy roast veggies this week). AND... I boiled some fresh beetroot that I pulled. These are now sitting in vinegar pickling away! Can't wait!

We had the veg with a cabbage that dad cut for me in the week. Home grown, organic and wonderfully tasty! Can't beat it!

Ooh, do you like my arty piccies btw? HAHA
