Spring is in the air – or at least it was at the weekend. It’s decidedly greyer here today, which makes me all the happier that we started Operation Garden on Saturday. You see we bought this house last April but with all the painting, setting up bills and terror of finally leaving home, we just didn't get round to doing anything outside!
So now we're setting ourselves a big challenge - to cover the cost of building and filling a 6ft vegetable trough for the garden by growing and consuming more vegetables than it actually cost us to make!
To make this work I need to grow and eat around 42 bags of spinach this year!
Bloody good job I love spinach then!
