I really didn't hold much hope*. We weren't sure if we had a green thumb between us, so we set the standard pretty low. We said it wouldn't bother us if the veggies failed - being our first go at it and all - as long as we managed to nurture a few herbs on the deck, we'd be happy planters.
So, as you can imagine - tomatoes, green capsicum, fennel, mutated/siamese carrots, lettuce, strawberries, basil, oregano, mint, rosemary, thyme, coriander and parsley kinda have us tickled pink.
Bring on next years harvest! Lalie, our self-appointed 'soil tester' concludes that we need to up the cow manure for the next planting.
*Despite spurring on a bit of friendly horticultural rivalry with Em. And not to toot my own horn here, but I have a sneaking suspicion I might have pipped her on this one. Care to comment, Beetle? I think it was you who said "the first with home grown produce on the table wins". Just gotta get these bad boys on the table and we'll call it a day, hey? ;)
