Vegetable Challenge

I've been wanting to grow my own vegetables for quite some time now. In fact, I've been wanting my own garden for quite some time, but that's another story...!
Over the past couple of days (if you follow me on Instagram you'd have seen) that I got a few vegetable plants to start out and to see how they would turn out! At the moment, I have some lettuce (probably far more than I need) tomatoes and beetroot. I'm most looking forward to the beetroot since I'm obsessed with pickled beetroot in jars (and I desperately want to make my own)

Anyway, this is my attempt at growing my own veggies. I'll be posting some pictures of how they're getting on....And hopefully, if they turn out nicely, I can post some recipes too!

I feel like I'm posting a LOT about 'gardening' lately, but I just really like the idea of growing my own 'produce', cooking with them, and just being a bit more back to basics in general. I'm going to bake my own bread again this week - and since I'm really pinching the pennies this week (ouch) I'll be baking some bread to take on our camping trip too!

I'm really looking forward to our trip Thursday! Although it's going to be extremely hard to resist buying new clothes at Meadowhall, or a cheeky purchase at Paperchase... However, I'm looking forward to our camping side of the trip! Hopefully, I'll get a good chance to take some proper photographs with my Canon. We're also camping near Bakewell - It's booked, so I can't wait to visit there.

Anyway, I'll either post a bread baking post just before or after our trip! I hope you're all having a very lovely week so far.



  1. I'm loving all your gardeny posts! I can't wait to get my own garden so I can do the same, but for now I'm just growing purple basil, flowering oregano and chillies on the windowsill :) xx

  2. So exciting, bet you're doing what I do and going and checking every day to see if they've grown! I've got my beetroot growing too so we'll have to see how both of ours get on! Mine are just little shoots so far! Ooh and love that photo of the greenhouse, the light is lovely :) X

  4. I'm trying my hand at "gardening" as well - and surprised by how difficult it is! good luck [Treasure Tromp] 


I love reading all your comments, they make my day!
