The best thing about gardening is discovering little surprises, like the baby cucumbers that are already showing up on my plants. We'll be eating our own cucumbers in just a couple of weeks - there's nothing like fresh garden produce!
I know watching doesn't make the plants grow faster, but I can't resist checking them several times a day, just to see if anything's changed. And, this time of year, there are often changes from morning to evening, so that keeps me going back out there to check again!
Now, if only the tomatoes would hurry on, we could have a proper home-grown salad!
As Clay Hill is only a tiny division of Thistledew :), it is appropriate to give you the link to our sister site, here: http://thistledewfarm.blogspot.com/. There you'll find another perspective on our adventures!
