Greetings, fellow gardeners

And, belatedly, a Happy New Year.

With greetings from the cat crew, too.

I must admit, I was rather despondant at the end of the season last year, with my lack of success in the garden overall. Oh, I harvested some fruits of my labour.

But the season ended with the garden in a terrible mess, with Mother Nature doing her best to reclaim it and turn it into a weed wilderness once more.

It's in a right state.

However, I have renewed vigour to get out there, and fight the good fight. And grow something worthwhile.

I took a turn out there this morning and perhaps it's not as bad as I thought. I actually found that the purple sprouting broccoli sprouted some purple broccoli.

Maybe there is hope for me after all.
