Gluey Fingers turn into Green Fingers?...

This summer I have decided that I want to grow some fruit and veg. As a child I used to love planting seeds and seeing them grow into something amazing. I felt all nostalgic the other day when I thought back to when I was a child and I went to my grandparents every Saturday. My Grandad was a keen gardner and I used to love exploring the wonders of my Grandparents' back garden. Afternoons spent picking bowls and bowls of raspberries, gooseberries and blackberries and shaking the apples off all their trees. I was too little to cut up the rhubarb but I would follow my Grandad down to the very bottom of the garden and watch as he cut off long pieces ready to be made into a crumble or pie by my Granny. He can't garden as much now and the raspberry bushes are gone as they were too much for him to look after. But it is time to get my own green fingers out and sow some seeds once again.

Me and my mum took a trip to Homebase and came back well equipped. We bought and planted some strawberry plants into a special strawberry plant pot and I planted some courgette seeds in little pots to start them off. We are also going to plant some potatoes and hopefully some carrots too. Maybe I'll be the one making the pies this time round. We'll see!
