    Tomatoes, rucula, chives, chinese chives (taste like garlic), baby leaf salad, pepper mynt and wild strawberry (Markjordbær). Gonna plant some more on monday, hope they will get finished this year, since I am a bit late. The one in the drinking glass is a offshot from a house plant.

    Sorry for bad picture quality, took it with my cellphone.

    We're growing all of the following in our garden ...

    Potatoes, Broccoli, Cauliflowers, Runner Beans, French Beans, Broad Beans, Leeks, Tomatoes, Courgettes, Beetroot, Purple Sprouting, Strawberries, Blackberries, Logan Berries and several types of herbs (Parsley, Chives, Rosemary, Thyme).

    ... and then there's a plum tree that has recently been planted but hasn't produced anything yet and a garlic plant that we just got earlier today. I reckon we'll be about done then because there isn't much space left and I can't think of much else we need.

    Not a bad effort overall, seeing how we started from scratch just over 2 years ago

    We are picking the last of the sweet corn today. Will will freeze most of it for this winter.

Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect."

    I made peppermint tea with the leaves of my plant. I left some leaves back, I hope it wont die so I can harvest more leaves. I didn't get that much tea from just one plant, so if it tastes good I'll plant more next year. Sorry for the bad image quality, I used my cellphone. I read that peppermint spreads out easily, maybe I can just place the plant in a much larger pot.

    Why would you grow "poisen plants" I'm just curious, I usually just call those weeds?
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    We don't seem to get as much of that here in west England, I think it prefers continental climates.
    We get lots of Holly and Yew in the woods besides the rivers instead. I wouldn't mind replacing the Hawthorn hedge at the back of my property with holly. The old hedge has been there since I moved in a few years ago and hasn't been managed for about 40 years and so has tried to grow into trees. It's full of gaps and is slowly dying and overrun with ivy so I want to replace it with some nice, impenetrable holly.

    In spring I'm going to put in a few more trees, mostly fruit trees. I already have a few cherry trees and some willows and a yew which was here before I was.

    I put in some Rhubarb rhizomes a few days ago and my strawberry plants survived the winter OK. I have Garden Strawberries and Woodland Strawberry plants (the latter being the native British one) - the difference in growth is striking. The Wood strawberry plant is drastically smaller than the garden strawberry ones.

    There's also a awkward patch of sand in the shade which I bravely tried to get crops to grow on - Turnips and Leeks to try and improve the soil. It's so bad the grass won't even grow there.
    It's a failure so I'm going to get some topsoil from the good areas of my land and seed it with creeping red fescue and white clover. It can be grazing land.

    I sold the chickens last year, they were to make money but then everyone started getting them and so I couldn't sell them to idiots in the suburbs for £7 per head any more. Eggs are cheaper for me to get from a farm shop, they're still free-range too, the price of corn rocketed.

    I might plant some potatoes too, most of my property is a good loam. It just has a bad area of soil at the top and clay at a small piece near the bottom of the hill.

    Garden cress (Lepidium sativum). Very easy to grow and grows really quick. Karse in Norwegian

    Planted 8th of march


    The other 3 pots have ruccola, also very easy to grow.

    13th of march


    14th of march




    Pot marigold (calendula officinalis). "Ringblomst".
    Edible flower.



    Should end up looking like this:


    Ruccola (Eruca sativa). Easy to grow and I like it a lot.






    Trying to get a root on this one, but the prospects are dim. Not sure of plant name.




    This is a Dutch yule tree my mom bought me, it came in a pot and is thriving very well. It seems it dies off in the care of most people, I guess they don't water enough. Trees need a lot. Not sure of what the latin name is.



    Garlic chives. (Allium tuberosum). "Kinesisk gressløk".
    More frail than normal chives, but pretty easy to grow. I've had some trouble with fruit files on this one, but my apple vinegar trap helps to kill them off.




    Not exactly sure about the name, but I think it is Alpine Strawberry. (Fragaria vesca) Called "trädgårdssmultron" in Swedish, markjordbær in Norwegian. Some annoying fruit flies here too, I hope they are not damaging to the plant.




    I managed to get a root on another plant I tried with. The mother plant is at my mothers, she had it for over 35 years. Anyone know the latin name?




    This mess is normal chives and ramsons (Allium ursinum). "Ramsløk".
    If you walk the forest in spring and get a small garlic smell it will be ramsons you smell. I read it looks very similar to poison ivy, but you can tell the difference by the smell. It grows easy in the garden and it speads very fast...
