Forgot what happened last year - maybe it's here!!
Sorry to bore everyone with more pics, but it's nice to look back and compare each year.
So here goes,
I think the runner beans that were yellow are looking lightly better
Spotted tiny broad beans
Decided to take some of the lower leaves off the tomatoe plants as they were very big and I am sure taking lots of goodness from the soil, hope I haven't done the wrong thing
Pak choi coming on nicely
Onions in the little bed not doing so well
think my little feathered friends using it as a dust bath doesn't help
Not veg growing I know but I spotted a bee on the water iris this morning
That's one less then
Usually Barking Up the Wrong Tree
Yippee, this morning I found the first strawberry turning color, it is a nice shade of pink, hope its red when I arrive home from work
THE strawberry is almost there but not quite red all over. I mentioned t to hubby yesterday hen I arrived home from work, he too had spotted it. So sad people we are we had a discussion about who should have it, looks like we are sharing.
We had a good old down pour yesterday evening, just what the garden needed
Busy day weeding.
Cauliflower, broccoli, sprouts and leaks
Beans in poly tunnel
Sweetcorn, not doing too well as the chookies keep squashing them, I have now put some wire around them
Finally, I don't think I will bother planting cabbage in the poly tunnel any more as it didn't do very well
I am starting to enjoy the fruits of my labour, so far I am eating lots of varieties of lettuce including rocket, radishes, yesterday had second lot of potatoes (delicious), there are a couple of strawberries ready, have been eating cabbages for weeks, now the pak choi look ready so tomorrow night we will have stir fried beef, mushroom, onion and pak choi in black bean sauce with boiled rice, I have onions left from last year.
Everythings looking smashing Davina but if i was you i wouln't waste time on cabbages again you dont seem to have much luck with them do you Lindaxx
And then there was one, Again!!!!
Little Angels Free For Ever
Honey,Lizzi,Peggy-Mitchel,April,Hope,Faith,Blondie, Sorrel,Scarlet, Penny, Gabby, Rosie, Chick-a-Dee
Remembering Our Beautiful Foster Boys we are so sorry that we couldn't keep you
I guess I have made a mistake with the sweetcorn in the poly tunnel, everyone told me t was too close together but I wanted to see how they faired, well the one t the back has an ear of corn growing out of the top so it probably won't get any bigger now Well I know for next year
Tomatoes in the green house not grown them before, called hundreds and thousands. Well that will be the case if they all ripen, the plants are very spindly though
Poly tunnel tomatoe looking good, this is the biggest one so far
This truss has 14 tomatoes and a further 2 flowers
Cucumbers doing ok
Broad beans doing ok
Runner beans doing ok
Spotted first 2 pea pods
Lastly brassicas moving along now
