Oh, what a blessing it is to have the first salad leaves on your plate. Especially those young leaves which are tender and tasty. As a beginner vegetable gardener last year, I found it a pity to take leaves of of these tiny plants, but now I now better. They shall grow on and deliver an abundance no matter what. So a few leaves in early spring won't harm them.
And I do have got loads more...
To be able to start early outside, I've been experimenting with plastic covering. I still find it hard to imagine that this thin sheet is making an early start possible, it seems so flimsy and thin. But my little plants seem happy underneath and that is what counts.
Hi, I'm Bregtje. Here you can find me with my head up side down in the garden. But I also can be found with my head in a newly home made cupboard or above the kitchen stove or even between piles of paper, sticking stuff in arty albums and brushing away with paint! And now I'm developing a new hobby to add to my ever growing project list: blogging about it all! Please find my Garden blog, Kitchen blog, Homemaking blog and Arts blog here!
