The Good Life

Who remembers "The Good Life", the BBC Sitcom about Tom and Barbara who decided to leave the rat race and become self sufficient. Well we definitely aren't Tom and Barbara, and unfortunately we have got no chance of leaving the rat race (I wish our numbers would come up on the Lottery lol), but we have decided to use up an area of our new garden, and create our own little Good Life. We are so pleased with the results. We are growing mixed salad leaves, summer cabbage, potatoes, onions, strawberries, sweetcorn (but that's not growing very well), savoy cabbages and last but not least we were given a cucumber plant and its amazing watching the cucumbers growing and getting larger and larger. The Good Life eat your heart out.


  1. Wow - very impressive! It must be a great feeling to be eating something you've grown yourself. What's next - cows? pigs? LOL

  2. This is wonderful.. I did the exact same thing.. I am enjoying zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers.. It has been fun.. Good luck..
