Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...

The potager gardens 2017

I shall be keeping a record of the two potager gardens, reporting on what was sown, harvested, eaten.
Not all plants sown will be for consumption, some are decorative, bee attractors, insect food and just for pure visual delight.

Hopefully this will inspire you to join in :) 
Growing your own food to eat feels good :)

  1. Where do you find the time given all the artwork you are doing? I've not sown any seeds yet!

  2. What a good idea to keep a blog diary for the year. Be helpful next year when you can check for best things to sew again and what to leave out. xx
