Excellent. The reason I first sowed wild flower seeds a couple of years ago and keep trying to get poppies to grow is to attract bees. I have a lavender bush which they like and I planted a hawthorn tree which is just blooming, so my bee cafe is open.

I have to confess, from a gardening point of view I was pleased to see that rain this afternoon!

Years ago I had an allotment. It's a lot of hard work.
Now I just have my garden with my iris' and lavender, a few clematis and a Jasmine that takes over everything.

Oh, and a greenhouse with a Lemon tree, yet to produce, an orange tree, that's full of flowers and produced three fruit last year. I've a new addition from a fellow orger this year. A fig tree called Figlet!

Just recently lost my large veg garden of 25 years Diz, for various reasons. I'm now on a friends 7 acre small holding with lots of veg space and for the first time, a greenhouse!

Much of it is down to trees and wildflowers, but there is as much veg growing space as we all need.

Technically speaking, we(The royal Pegasus we) own around six acres out in Cyprus that's prime growing land.
Unfortunately, for political reasons we can't use any of it. It's quite astounding how vast that is when I got him to stand in one of his fields a couple of years ago.
We do own one that has its own wall and barbed wire around it. Standing next to that is like standing in our street and saying 'i own this'

Busy afternoon. Cut back the paths between the raised beds below the greenhouse, and then hoed the whole middle bed.
Then planted 4 rows of Kelvedon Wonder peas, 1 rows of peas previously germinated in toilet roll tubes, and 2 rows of peas straight into the ground. I'll plant a few more rows of them in a couple of weeks time, so I get a succession of them.

I was going to plant a few rows of mangetout peas as well but it's started raining so I'll have some dinner now and see if it's going to stop later.

Had dinner then nipped out between showers to put another four rows of peas in, except it started raining again while I was doing it. I'm a bit wet now!
