Succesful planting (and lack thereof)

One of the first thing I had done when I had a garden was plant vegetables. And after a while, the radishes came up. No sign of the carrots, potatoes, leek, or Brussels sprouts! Oh dear. And then the slugs found the radishes and ate them. So my vegetable raised bed looks convincingly like an empty raised bed.

A bit after the planting the veg I had made one raise bed smaller; it needed to make some space for a path to the gate. So I moved it back a considerable distance, put some extra slate slabs down, and then had some extra empty soil  left over. And I figured that needed to become part of the lawn. And that requires grass! So I bought grass seed and planted it. And that came up! Success! I can grow something!
