Going Potty in Easington Colliery

My little kitchen garden is coming along nicely. So far I’ve planted out:

  • Okra (Clemson’s Spineless)
  • Climbing Beans (Borlotto Lingus di Fuoco)
  • Mustard (Golden Frills)
  • Courgette (F1 Hybrid)
  • Good King Henry
  • Basil
  • Dwarf Beans (Purple Teepee)
  • Cumin
  • Spring Onoins
  • Chamomile (Matricaria)
  • Golden Purslane
  • Pot Marjoram
  • Chervil
  • Welsh Onion
  • Salsify (Mammoth)
  • Burnet
  • Borage
  • Pea (Kelvedon Wonder)

I still have a lot of other plants in propagators, which I will plant out once they are big and healthy.
I’m really looking forward to cooking the vegetables and herbs that I’ve grown myself, no chemicals or anything bad, just clean and healthy food, and hopefully the taste will exceed my expectations.
Now all I need is lots of warm sunny days so that the plants can thrive and grow.
