Not a harvest but lovely blooms
This spot is looking good
I am picking mixed fruit each day
The blackcurrant crop was very poor,
but Monty said it was a greedy plant so next year I will feed it.
I only have two tomato plants this year
both are full of fruit
Cucumbers, which I love have gone mad again.
I saw this book on someone's blog, I'm sorry I forget who
It was a brilliant read, I will look out for more books by this author
Hubby has finished his front garden with red cedar bark
He planted his solo plant purchase.
I love the look of this garden, which is totally different than I would have planted.
I can't wait for the liquid fertilizer to be produced from my wormery, the intention is not to use any other types. The compost made won't be enough for my needs, but I am happy we are using the kitchen waste to create other things. Our garden is so tiny I don't have any room for a normal compost heap.
Where we feed the birds and squirrels is working, keeping them at the back of the plot, where I have the lovely hedgerow which soon will be fill of berries again, none of them have attacked any of my fruit tubs, which are nearer the house.
I do need loads of copper tape for my pots, slugs have not been such a huge problem this year, but they have munched through my hosta leaves. I do still use slug pellets which work, I did get last year wool pellets, which were expensive and did not last too long. The slug numbers are down in the garden, so if anyone has any suggestions, I am willing to try different methods.
I am loving our fake grass, we sit and walk on it, it does feel real, except the crunch under foot, it's nice to come home and see it so green and not requiring a cut.
We went to town this morning, got a pair of half price sandals from Clarkes, and a couple garden things from Wilko's. I met a friend for lunch, we chatted together for a couple of hours, we both retire on the same day, so we are planning one afternoon a month for girly time.
Later we are off to a BBQ, just hope the weather stays fine.
