Edible vegetable beds


Having a daughter with a talent for making and decorating cakes (see her Iced Gems website) proved a real bonus on my birthday this week, when she surprised me with this beautiful creation. I can tell you it tastes even better than it looks.

I have to admit too, that it is much more neat and tidy than my actual veggie patch, they do get to look rather tired at this time of year don't they; thankfully though, it has been a very productive year.

Apologies for not keeping the blog up to date with everything that has been growing there. I will try better, honest!

Happy belated birthday! This cake is gorgeously decorated! Your daughter definitely is creative and talented! I am a relatively new gardener and have a small veggie patch in our back yard, growing my own food from seeds is SO exciting! Come see some pics of my garden on my blog, if you want to.

Thank you Tina, she's very clever isn't she, takes after her Mum, not me!
Good luck with your veggie patch, I will try and be more up to date with information here.
