i've now got 4 out of my 6 regular clients growing vegetables in one way or another, it's great that they are growing their own, and i'm loving helping them be successful veg growers, but yesterday I had to admit that the green eyed jealousy monster came out.
I've grown some lovely courgettes from seed this year, and as I always do, I grow too many and so my clients get some of them.
Same seeds, same germination time (in the same greenhouse) - clients garden
I know that there is more sun in their south facing garden than mine, and that the soil is imported top soil mixed with compost, whereas mine is infested with conifer roots, - but, it's not fair, (stamps feet like a petulant child!) she's the beginner and i'm meant to be the expert :(
Oh well i'll have to console myself with knowing that i'll get some of the crop when i'm watering during holidays :)
