The Undergardener is getting ideas above his station – he wants his own bit of mtp. I must admit I didn’t see it coming. I know he enjoys his little jaunts to the plot, and of course he’s a good digger but he’s never once expressed an interest in actually growing anything; eating yes, but growing no!
At first I was horrified. Mtp is TINY (as the name suggests) and so the idea that I have a ‘spare bed that isn’t really being used’ is simply insane. I mean, it’s all being used, at least in my head anyway.
Of course my selfishness didn’t last long and I caved in. I’ve given him a bed that is roughly 3 metres by about 1.5 metres. He’s already decided what he’s going to grow – Cauliflower and Pak Choi (not sure exactly why those two, but hey…). All I know is that it’s painful giving away part of your garden (even for love!) and I’m already jealous of his shiny new seedpackets.
