I have been in the garden for most of the day, I just slipped out this morning to fetch some manure.
Said smelly stuff will hopefully get me a good harvest of squashes, both summer and winter, as they are very greedy plants.
The lemon and fig trees are in their summer home, just in front is the end of a raised bed with spring greens and garlic. The solar unit for some of my fairy lights is in the corner.
A wild corner, a bit untidy but it will stay.
Just like this bluebell growing from a gap in the step, I can step over it with no probs. I have been doing so for 2 years now.
The view from that step, a pot of climbing peas, behind you can see the canes for more peas and just glimpse the green frame for beans. right at the top are my early potatoes all in buckets and growing bags.
There is a little clump of flowering plants just behind that tub, cuttings from a neighbour.
There are 3 red and 3 white flowered strawberries in this trough, it is being moved to a new home later.
This bed has 5 of the rhubarb plants that I grew from seed, the other end has more strawberries. Every bit of ground is put to work, there are some lettuce and Purple sprouting broccoli plants to be transplanted in here and a scattering of radishes.
In the gaps between the beds I have small tubs of Nantes carrots, there are 8 of these in various stages of growth in the garden.
More carrots, 2 baby blueberries and a self seeded fox glove, I will let it flower and then decide if it stays or goes. There is a clump of flowers and weeds just to the right that needs some attention.
One of the compost corners, slightly screened by the cherry.
This a work in progress area, lots of plants that need either potting on or getting into the ground, a few pots of potatoes and some seedlings.
A peep into one of the greenhouses.
This gooseberry is one of 2 small plants that I brought with me, there are a few fruits on it and it has a companion in the shape of a foxglove. This autumn it will be going into the ground.
Just outside the kitchen door I have toughs of summer bulbs, they will be out in the garden soon. There are also a few plants for the top of my little wall.
That is enough for now, I have drunk my tea and am back off outside.
