Starting a new vegetable plot.

Nettles used here for liquid feed.

Nettles used here for liquid feed.

Today started damp,with a slight touch of of wind on the cool side.Some very light work will be done in the vegetable garden later.All notes will be taken with the final markers for some more different types of seed potatoes.They have all been chitted up inside.Four selections will have been used overall.First earlies,second earlies,maincrop,and container types of seed potatoes.

When starting a vegetable plot,do it right first time and your new plot will soon be producing plenty of healthy homegrown vegetables.Before you start really into action there take a photograph of your new plot.Plenty have been started already but still in the earlie stages.Always remember to look at it from time to time over the following weeks,months,and years.This will remind yourself of how much you have achieved over time.

I totally agree John, photos are a great way of reminding. I've only benn taking photos recently of the work i've got done in the garden. Its great to look back and see what you've achieved and sometimes it gives a little lnspiration to get that bit more done. Its amazing how quick you can forget what something looked like after you've changed it.

Photos are a great way to capture moments in time and gardening how things grow and develop, they can be a great inspiration to drive us forward or sit back and rest on our laurels when we've achieved our goal - at least for that moment in time and then away we go again. Quite windy here and threatening rain but getting geared up to go to the kitchen garden again.

I'm with you too on the photographic diary suggestion. I find it very encouraging, even if I'd b looking more at ornamentals. In winter it's almost impossible to believe what the previous summer produced - except you have the photos to prove it : )
