After being in the office all day it was lovely walking around the garden this evening. I love this time of year when everything is growing in the veg patch. I decided to pull up a bunch of carrots to go with dinner. They were so sweet and fresh and some didn't make it into the pan. You may think it's not worth growing them as they take so long to mature and they are relatively cheap to buy in the supermarket. But you would be wrong and I think it is worth the wait! Once you have grown your own you will realise they taste like carrots and not bland like the ones in shops. I've added a photo of my new compost bin that I now use in the kitchen. I think it looks better on the work top than the blue plastic one!
