Aims for 2015

I’ve been thinking about all of the ways in which our garden is making us happy and I thought I’d try to organise said happiness into a list of all of the things I’d like to get from it this year. So here are my main aims, in no particular order. Did I miss any?

1. Make condiments (ketchup and mustard at the very least)
2. Save at least £250 on fruit and vegetables by using our own produce
3. Eat at least one thing from our tiny garden every week from May onwards
4. Dry and store my own garlic
5. Make ice lollies with our own fruit
6. Make jam with garden fruit
7. Make at least one botanical cocktail using garden produce
8. Carve our own pumpkin for halloween
9. Serve Christmas lunch with our own carrots, parsnips and brussel sprouts
10. Dry and store my own herbs
