Update 1 - short - but more to follow

Sorry I have been away the past few weeks - I finished up work and thought I would have more time on my hands home with the kids, but turns out I have a lot less :-) Trips to the beach, Bunratty Castle and catching up with friends has been dominating my time. I will get some more proper updates up later this week. These are some photos from a few weeks ago - will have more up to date ones uploaded then.

The weather also hasn't helped - think it has been a record July for rainfall so far in Ireland - and thats saying something!!

Onions are starting to swell

First carrot and beetroot picked at start of July
Potatoes and peas growing nicely start of July

Strawberry plant producing runners since start of July


  1. Good to see you're back posting!

    Our veg garden is doing well too, but you're right, the weather really hasn't helped anything. ;o(

    1. Hi Paddy,
      Looking forward to catching up on your blog. Finally back in the land of internet!

  2. Your strawberry pot plant is huge, it must love all your rain. They never do that well for me in pots.

    1. Hi Sensiblegardening, Sorry lost internet access for a few months. My secret is putting a good handful of water retaining gels in the pot - helps to prevent the pot ever fully drying out. Worked really well for me - though it barely stopped raining in Ireland this year!! Niamh.
