First crop of the year

Yesterday we ate salad leaves harvested from our garden. They were so easy to grow (pot plus compost plus seeds plus water equals salad), and tasted so much more flavoursome and less watery than those bags of mixed salad leaves from supermarkets.

Currently my tomato, chilli, sweet pepper, spinach, basil and lettuce seedlings are doing very well, but butternut squash, purple sprouting broccoli and dianthus (pinks) are floudering a bit. I have also sown chard, carrots, artichokes, thyme and runner beans, but they haven’t made their appearance yet.
