Actually, bear is utterly exhausted and the sooner the holiday comes the better.
Today I decided to pull the carrots I planted a few months ago. They were sold as purple carrots and I was wondering if they were ready. I had no idea. Bear was very encouraging. Amongst the purple carrots were some purple spring onions to discourage carrot fly. They were looking a bit thin, but again, I wasn't sure what I should have been looking for.
What we got was this.
The carrots weren't desperately purple. The spring onions were quite purple but were not very big.
I had been thinking on the bus today, and decided it wasn't really worth us growing any veggies. By the time we had sorted out plants/seeds/compost etc and I had slogged around with all the watering I might as well buy the veggies from the shop. Bear has decided, after pulling the carrots, that we really, really need to be growing more veggies.
I'll wait and see.
