I’ve started sowing my autumn/winter garden with a little help from my neighbor, Ernest. He has been incredibly helpful with his 28 years of experience in the field. I am very lucky to have such a knowledgeable person right next door. Today, I planted lavender, mint, little gem lettuce, perpetual spinach and white Lisbon onion seeds. I really hope they germinate, but we will have to see.

On another note, my cherry tomatoes are as vibrant as ever. They aren’t turning red as quickly as they were in Brighton, but they are certainly giving me loads of fruit. I think I did a good job with this first plant as it is producing very sweet tomatoes every couple of days. I might be an inexperienced gardener, but I would have to say this particular plant has been quite successful.

My lovely friend Jean gifted Dennis and I with a cucumber plant a few months ago, and I have very good news to report. The plant has given us one lovely, wonky cucumber. I really thought it was going to just wilt away, but it has grown quite a bit. It might be a little weird looking, but it is certainly more than I expected. Nevertheless, I have learned the proper method of caring for it, and next year I expect a better crop. I’m just glad we had the one cucumber as opposed to none at all. It has certainly given me hope.

I will certainly keep everyone updated on the garden’s status. We just moved into our new flat, and our plants don’t have a stable location at the moment. I have the entire garden planned out, and I hope it turns out the way I envision it. Stay tuned…
