Garden ready!

I wanted to do a final post and just say a huge goodbye and Thank you to everyone. 

I have really enjoyed this years challenge, my 5th one, just as much as every other time. I enjoy reading everyones posts and learning from others and watching their gardens grow. 

This has been my second year in my new garden and it has been very different to last year and im sure next year will be very different again.  My plants are a bit behind last year as we have had much, much more rain than last year and its taken a little longer to warm up. 

Its just amazing what a difference temperature makes, I have a greenhouse and I couldnt even cheat  mother nature. Everything in its own time, you cant rush it. 

The photo is from last year and its what im looking forward to the most.

I hope to see all of you again nexy year for the challenge, good luck with your summer gardens and all your harvesting. Remember to give preserving a go and to share your excess produce. 

Merry Christmas to everyone, Happy New Year and stay safe.
