Growing my own

This year is my year. With raised beds set in the garden, a bag full of compost, a tub of seeds, and seedling trays - I am all set. 

Having come from a family upbringing where most of our food was home grown for several years, you'd think I'd be a dab hand at this. Think again. 

My father came round the other day and I totally bombarded him with question after question about timings, the right temperature, soil conditions, which seeds should be kept indoors first etc etc. 

When it came to planting it all... I still felt totally clueless. But Chick 4 enjoyed the experience of it all.

Needless to say, after an agonizing week of waiting... the first few seedling heads popped up to say hello. What a beautiful sight they were too.
