The Veggie Patch...A New Beginning

Just a quickie!

The veggies (or at least some of them...) are in! I'm gonna do a little piece on my patch every couple of weeks to show the progress and what we've been up to. If you are in need of any tips or advice, please comment and i will try and help. I'm no expert but i do have experience in using small spaces to feed a family of four and using natural ways to deter pests instead of pesticides.

Obviously doesn't look like much at the mo, but it won't take long before it'll be blooming!

Outside we planted: 

Broad Beans
Purple Dwarf French Beans (they look awesome when growing but turn green when you cook them :o(...)

Inside we planted:

French Marigolds (they keep away aphids)
Nasturtiums (to attract caterpillars away from other plants)
Sweet Peas
Sweet Peppers
Spring Onions
Butternut Squash

So far the Marigolds have already sprouted (i probably shouldn't be as excited as i am but i'm the same every year!)

Do you do any grow your own?
