What is the greatest moment for a trainee gardener, starting out? After all that hardwork, digging and shovelling manure and topsoil, stamping the plot down and raking it over and over, and then setting up my trays, planting teeny tiny little seeds in their little modules, I have some rewards!
If you look really closely, you can see the tiny little buds! These are my salad leaves.
The sense of pride and achievement I felt I think was greater than anything else!
And a few days later, they started springing up everywhere!
