This summer was slightly more successful than last when it came to the girls' gardening efforts. Not that this was all that difficult, we just needed a little sunlight and we were there! Here are some of the results...

Sunflowers grown from seeds that we harvested two years ago.
They did produce nice flowers (that I neglected to picture).
The only downside is that slugs ate all but two of the 8 plants.

We bought a strawberry plant this year, and got give another one.
Not bad for the first year!
Plenty of potatoes this year, and the broad beans and carrots came out well too.

The tomatoes have produced a few fruit now (all from the yellow one so far) but the only pepper so far fell off only part formed after a couple of weeks.

Not bad either!
The only downside to mucky activities.
