The garden is blooming!

Wow! The garden is growing like mad! Everything seems to grow inches between visits. I can see the start of nearly all the veg…. Tomatoes, peas, courgette (or zucchini depending on where you are)! I really don’t know what I’m doing, so I really appreciated it when another gardener came over and gave me some advice….. Cut off all the flowers on your lettuce! Thin the carrots! Eek, ok! I tried to save the lettuce flowers, but they died so quickly. But I enjoyed munching on the victim carrots a lot!
Today I cut some poppies from my garden, and used the walk home as a foraging mission, and managed to get a nice handful of stems, and some dried out seed heads ready to make a little jar arrangement for the house by the time I got back. It’s quite hard to know where the forage/steal line is…… I’m determining it from how quickly I am trying to get away from the scene of the crime! Anyway, today I'm going to link in for the very first time to Jane’s house party Pop over and have a look at what everyone is up to!
Here’s the results of the garden cuttings and walk home.
Here it is again with my favorite goat picture!
