We have no vegetable garden at the moment, so we have settled for a few pots outside the house. Our few pots have allowed us to grow peas, dwarf runner beans, yellow pepper, tomatoes (cherry and normal), strawberries and a cucumber vine. Around the corner there is a rhubarb plant but it doesn't seem as happy this year as in previous years. It really needs to be shifted into the ground out of its pot but until the veggie garden is up and running there's nowhere for it to go!
My mum started the cucumber off for us in her greenhouse but our brilliant summer here has meant its happy in its sink! We have a plethora of baths and sinks that seem to breed around farmyards! In keeping with our new 'keep it green' attitude they are all earmarked for something, mostly planters, as modelled by our cucumber and pepper plant.
One of the old feeders from the byre (our lovely builders managed to save three of the five) has become a great home for a small selection of herbs, just outside the back door. I'm always wishing I had fresh herbs for my cooking... well, now I have no excuse!
