Default Garden

The garden has started paying back for the work earlier in the year now. Starting to eat the Chard, picking gooseberries and blackcurrants, peas are nearly ready to begin picking, and we're shortly going to be eating courgettes. Lots of courgettes!

The bare looking bit does actually have carrots and parsnips showing through now.

Chard, sweetcorn, peas, tomatoes....

I threw a load of mixed poppy seeds in the front flower beds and all sorts of stuff keeps showing up and surprising me.

How is everyone else's garden doing?

We have two sugar snap peas and three dwarf french beans growing. Not exactly a bumper crop!


My peppers were attacked by white fly and look a bit worse for wear. The cayenne is surviving though and starting to show signs of a couple of small peppers.


The most successful thing so far is radishes. Which no one else likes in our family and not really the sort of thing I'll eat a lot of. Oh well.


Courgettes are flowering nicely. Hopefully a sign we'll have a few. I'll let a couple grow large if we do and make spicy chutney out of them.

Pictures Adam?

Radishes would grow through a nuclear holocaust I reckon! They were the first crop to show in my garden. I'm the only one in my household who likes them and I've already eaten the first sowing. Now waiting for the second crop to come up.

Agreed. Nobody in our house likes them but dad grows them.

I'm now digging up the early spuds, the beans are not doing bad considering we've had so little rain recently, the lettuce is going to seed so quickly now it's so warm and the pumpkins are starting to roam. Must take some pics...
