Update around the site


This is an update of photos from around the site this morning. I have been away from it the past few days so was good to get back to it - back achingly good! :-)

Tomatoes in the greenhouse are growing well - plenty of flowers - waiting on the fruit to start forming next.


Chilli plant in the greenhouse - flowering nicely too - probably needs potting up soon


Spuds are growing well - some damage from the rain last week, but coming back nicely


Leeks closest and onions growing well


Spuds in raised bed - growing well - had a look at some of the earlies, but only pebbles yet but they were planted late



Lettuce on the left, bush tomato and basil under the cloche and strawberry plants with plenty of fruit that just needs to ripen

 
4 rows of carrots - all planted at different times. The ones in the toilet rolls are looking a lot healthier now
Beetroot - 2 rows


Onions in bed with leeks on the right


Parsnips - looking very healthy


Broccoli nearly ready to pick, Brussels sprouts and cabbage/cauliflower on the left
Rock garden - flowering nicely

Strawberry pot - again waiting to ripen!


Bed beside the rock garden - various shrubs and bedding plants in there, Also a family sunflower competition!


Potatoes in pot - very small
View back looking towards the house from the beds


Fruit trees and wildflower garden which has been a bit of a disappointment this year compared to last year - grass has taken over


Peas - mangetout to the front of the row and then petit pois - seem to be a bit behind most peoples
Our gift to the kids arrived today - bought a wooden playhouse - will update with photos once we get it together, hopefully over the weekend if its dry! Its a thanks to them for losing their parents most evenings to the garden.


Picked my first head of Broccoli this evening - couldn't wait - on the menu for dinner tomorrow!
