How does your garden grow?

I got up early today to catch up in the garden as its stopped raining for a while. This is the garden looking at it with your back to the cottage. Considering my green fingers had only served a brief apprenticeship growing cress out of blotting paper on windowsill I don't seem to be doing too badly for a one armed gardener.

18 months ago this was a wilderness, all brambles and weeds. Now most of the weeds have been replaced by more useful plants like potatoes, sweetcorn, peas, cauliflower, broccoli, squash, courgettes, strawberries, fruit bushes at the back and a pumpkin patch behind them. The out of control grape can just be seen in the closest greenhouse, the other one contains the tomatoes and the salad, most of which will be put out in the bed that's empty, covered in Williams finest pooh. Out of shot are more beds, mainly onions, sprouts and beans, more pumpkins (went a bit mad there, I don't even like pumpkin!) and herbs.

As long as the goats stay out we should get some tasty veg this year!
