I harvested part of carrots today and noted that carrot fly has eaten part of carrots. Those in the garden bed are mostly full of their holes but carrots in the frame are all clean. They are big and healthy.

I checked today my seeds from the last year and visited the page of local garden market as I am planning to go there to buy seeds at the next week. I am now as:

I want them all...



*need to calm down and remember how little my garden actually is before I´ll go to this garden market and buy too much seed bags*

Today I visited in the heaven... I mean in the garden market.





Beans, peas, pumpkins, tomatoes, lettuces...







Something I have tried already and also something is new like lemon cucumber, "tigerella" tomato and ramsons. As I usually may buy far too much seeds, that´s why I asked a friend come with me and asked her to drag me out from the market before I buy too much seeds which weren´t on my shopping list. Luckily that was what she in the end really did.

Now I just have to wait the March to start with all those seeds...

I think so but I might not use all seeds. Still I need to go to other garden market later. Plus I have seeds I collected at the last season.

Mine the biggest one giant pumpkin was 17 kg so I try if I can grow any bigger. Label says it can grow 25 to 50 kg if summer is good and I treat it well.

But at the end of the season I of course will eat it.
