Why have a marker in the garden? This particular marker is tied round a corn cob which will eventually be harvested and saved for seed for next year. Our corn kernels germinated much better than bought ones this year so we decided to save more seed. The cob is marked with a bright orange bow. Spotted it yet?
Here it is tied around the largest corn cob.
These two will be eaten for tea.
The Lidl cut and come again lettuce that was planted a while ago has now matured into large lettuce plants.
It saves on trying to sew fiddly seeds. The small lettuce plants for 60 something pence grow really well.
So does Lidl mint.
Our potatoes have stayed in the ground long enough and have grown really large. All the top leaves have died down and it's quite difficult to spot where the potatoes are. Perhaps I need some more markers!
