Oooohhhh those look wonderfully healthy!
We recently moved into a house from a flat (apartment) and the garden was empty - no flower beds, dead grass... just bare! I was sold on the house but my gosh the smallish garden needed alot of TLC to get it to where I wanted it to be!
My stepson asked if he could grow some veg.
I thought "pmfffff yes as if I'm the gardening type... they'll die!" but I went ahead and prepared the patch properly, put down the right mulch and compost and went out to get the little baby plants with Harry one afternoon! We came back with... Tomato's, baby corn, brussell sprouts, spinach and cauliflower! All are doing fantastically except I'm yet to see any buds
I am fighting with the slugs and snails though as we are doing this organically! Therefore no pesticides except natural remedies! Just how many eggs am I supposed to eat to crush the shells to keep the bad mean slugs away?
Well the small
veg patch has now grown even bigger because I've not just stopped at those few I bought earlier in the season... I've now gone and stupidly planted peas, runner beans and herbs as well!
I don't know why I do it to myself! SS is only at ours over a weekend so numpty here is the one who has to look after them! But I secretly love it! shhhhhh don't tell anyone!
My neighbour has also popped her head round this past week and commented on how pretty my flower bedsare... I didn't mean to colour co-ordinate the flowers but they've all seem to come out in shades of purple, pink and mauve!!! All the flowers are now starting to bud and flower and the garden is really starting to take on a very pretty and inviting place to be!
This weekend, I'm going to put up a willow screen down the one side of the garden as there is no proper fence up on that side and although my neighbours are great, our kids and the kids on the other side of then, tend to jump the fence, walk through the middle neighbours gardend and into our and across again when they want to go home! And the parents of the other children got a little telling off
one weekend when they did this 38 times in an hour and a little path started appearing across the middle neighbours grass!
