Project grow your own – Planting

Now our vegetable patch is ready we have spent a great deal of time planting our seeds and plants and getting it ready and I think this was Emmys favourite part, digging and getting messy!

With the help of my best friend and Emmy’s godmother Ruth our garden veggies are all in, planted and sown.

Ruth has an allotment and grows her own so kindly donated some plants and seeds to us.  The potting up the plants ready had been done for us and we just popped them into the greenhouse or into the ground. (Thanks Ruth).

Planting, sowing, grow your own

It was great to see Emmy and her best friend Jamie having such fun preparing the soil, breaking down the lumps of soil, sowing the seeds and planting (and bossing each other around as normal).

In our veggie patch, greenhouse, grow bags and hanging baskets we now have:

  • Carrots
  • Lettuce
  • Radish
  • Spring Onion
  • Onion
  • Celery
  • Tomatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Courgette
  • Peas
  • Mange Tout
  • Runner Beans
  • Peppers
  • Pumpkin
  • Sunflowers

Emmy is a star and remembers to water her plants every day – Infact she is loving just being in the garden and watching it all grow.  She will often bring me a pot or two amazed at the over night growth.

(Thanks to my Dad too who have been bringing extra treats to add to our growing collection).
