We had a weekend in the garden everything has just about finished now & I've had to start buying more in. Which of course I really detest doing, specially buying lettuce I really hate that. It's so expensive compared to the cost of what you can grow it for it never tastes as good & half of it usually ends up in the chook scraps as it never lasts as long. We are used to just picking a little when we need it. We do use a fair bit of lettuce though as we love salads especially coming into this time of year.
Hope you all have a great day we have visitors at the moment so I know my day shall be fantastic. Love & Hugs to you all Caroline

Hi Caroline,
I just stumbled across your blog from Little jenny Wren. Loved visiting especially the music. I'm a diehard country fan myself and I love Tim Mcgraw's song "Live like you were dying"

Hi Caroline - what lovely photos. I agree about the lettuce factor. I'm back out this morning to sow another lot of mesclun mix, and buttercrunch to keep the supply going when the current bunch wear thin.

Regarding carrots: I've always grown carrots that look spectacular, but taste dreadful. The only time I've had success was last year when I put them (in a hissy fit) to grow in an old council recycling tub with a mixture of whatever was around - from memory it was about one third potting mix, one third sand pinched from the sandpit, some soil and some compost. They tasted fine. But otherwise, my carrot growing expertise can only grow and improve!

I know what you mean about buying the lettuce, I have been planting 1 or 2 punnets of lettuce a week to keep up..I punnet is cheaper than a lettuce!
