And now, with added architecture…

We got a greenhouse! Not a proper one, obviously, a fairly compact one that doesn’t involve pouring a concrete slab or any serious clearing of space for it.

The carrots are starting to peep out of the ground… while this is A Good Thing, I’m quite nervous – we haven’t covered them, and Steve didn’t get a strain that is specifically resistant to carrot-fly. I can hear the conversation I had with my mother years ago about the dangers echoing in my head, and also, I remember picking carrots that had been ravaged by carrot-flies, and having them basically disintegrate as I picked them, which was very disappointing…

And before anyone points it out, yes I know the plant immediately beside the stick that says “carrot” isn’t a carrot. It’s been taken out now. Or at least, I hope it has…

And these are our potatoes. Aren’t they *pretty*?! I’m loving the purple in the centre of the leaves. Sadly that seems to be going away as the leaves get bigger, but at this stage, I’m vey much liking them.

And am now going to go back to knock the dirt off of this one… I’ll never have a career as a gardening stylist, will I… 😀
