50 not out!

Well 6 months into this blog and I’ve made it to the 50th post. It’s been great sharing my thoughts with you all and thanks for taking a look and giving your comments. Now the season is really getting going and the next 6 months will be very hectic, packed full of veg and flowers from around the garden.

I’ve gone a bit mad on the sowing and potting on over the last few weeks so I did a stock take to see where I am.

  1. You’ve pretty much got the lot there. It’s an impressive list. Mind you, you seem to be lacking in the radish department!

  2. Congratulations – your seed list looks as bad as ours! It’s always a worry knowing where they will all go before planting out!

  3. Well done on 50 posts! I’m something of a blogaholic as I’m approaching 3 years and 400 posts, and have/had several other blogs!
    You seem to be growing just about everything, and seeing your greenhouse list makes me wish that I had one! It sure looks like you’ll be busy harvesting later on in the year, and you’ll also have plenty to blog about!
    I’ve added you to my ‘lawn loungers’ list and will also give you a mention in a forthcoming post.
    Happy gardening!

    • Thanks Flighty that’s some impressive stats you have. Thanks in advance for the link and mention, I will get round to adding you to my list so I can keep track.

  4. Congratulations on reaching 50 posts. Blogging and gardening seem to go hand in hand, a blog is a great way of recording what you’ve done and when, and your successes and failures. From your seedling list, it sounds like you will be eating like royalty later in the year.

  5. Well done, Ive got somewhere to go to catch up ! Only at 14 posts 🙂

  6. Well done on your 50th post!
