An attractive use for broken pots!
We are nearly there!
All the veg beds on #145 are now dug and potatoes, drying beans, peas, onions, purple sprouting broccoli, savoy cabbages, Brussel sprouts, turnips, radishes, rocket, lettuce, chick peas, tomatoes and
marrows are all growing away. Some of the beans are even twining themselves around the poles now. That only leaves the squashes, which are still being hardened off at home, and will be planted out later this week.
On #146 there are mangetout, climbing
french beans, runner beans, Wizard beans, chard, lettuce, potatoes, onions, shallots, garlic,calabrese, pointed cabbages, kohl rabi, parsnips, carrots, courgettes, borlotti beans, peppers, watercress, beetroot and radishes, together with tomatoes,
golden mangetout and spring onions in the mini tunnel. Chillies are ready to be planted in their giant cloche, cucumbers in their sheltered spot and that will be all the beds filled.
The tray of leeks (to follow the first early potatoes) and the
kale seedlings (to follow the second early potatoes) can go down to the small coldframe on #146, and the remaining tomatoes all have their new homes sorted. Instead of growing them in a block edged with french marigolds this year, I have decided
to plant them individually for a change. The cosmos, Indian marigolds and asters are all planted, leaving a tray of zinnias for the pots in our front garden. Abi has planted up the "alpine" pots ...and very good they look too.
actually be able to sit on the benches in our garden at home, and use the table too: trays of plants have been on them for weeks, and it is so good to have our garden back again instead of it looking like a nursery. It has all been a bit frantic, but we are
nearly there now!!!!!
