Living with A Percy Thrower

We are quite lucky that our back garden is of a reasonable size. The front is tiny, but the back – she is quite big. Last year Mrs Cheesecake decided she was keen to develop a green finger so had a bash at planting some carrots, onions, potatoes and strawberries. The results were positive for the most part with the exception of the carrots which could best be described as “a bit mutated“. Apart from that bizarreness it was a success. For reference we also inherited a pear tree and an apple tree so there was lots of fruit and veg available. This year Mrs C has decided to up the stakes a little. She is attempting the following:

  • Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Carrots (purple – see below)
  • Carrots  (orange – in case the purple ones are just too damn weird)
  • Strawberries
  • Apples
  • Blackcurrants
  • Redcurrants
  • Plums
  • Pumpkins
  • Tomatoes
  • Blueberries
  • Pears
  • Rhubarb
  • Peas
  • Various herbs and garlic

Now we are not going all Good Life but I’ll give her this much – Mrs Cheesecake aims big! If I could just convince her to purchase a sheep so I didn’t have to mow the lawn I would be quids in. How much does a sheep cost?

Told you didn’t I? – purple fucking carrots!
