Reap what you sow

I have just harvested my first potatoes and although they only fill ½ a bucket I’m still feeling quite smug. I grow them on the patio in lager polly bags that came as a kit complete with potatoes and full instructions, and watched with amazement as they proceeded to take over a ¼ of the space, I never knew how much green stuff came from the humble potato. I’ve still got 2 more containers to go so I hope there’s plenty more to come. There’s something incredible satisfying growing your own stuff (and eating it) it makes you feel more part of the planet, it certainly make you aware of the seasons and the weather, while giving you free-ish food (which I never turn my nose up at)

Its been 2 weeks since I was made Blog of note, and as yesterdays post shows I have been a bit swamped with all the attention (loving every second of it though), but because of that I have found loads of great blogs to read, at just the time, I’ve no time to read them. So over the next few days I am going to make a big effort to visit all the ones I’ve book marked and give them some quality time, then I will put the best on my blog list to share with you all.

Today the photo is of one of my other “crops” taken in the rain earlier this week.

I am constantly amazed at how breathtaking nature is. It reinforces my efforts to try to "make a difference" in the world. Thanks!
