Tomato plants doing well, both planted in their final place
50p tumbling yellow in greenhouse
Red fruit outside greenhouse door, I forget it's name, with the extra strawberry plants
The back fence is now clearer, I like it better this way.
Path to raised garden all clean and clear
I planted up my raised bed, a few of the plants are small, but if they don't survive I can replace them, I have more in the greenhouse. I have the old plastic greenhouse door which fits over this bed, which I am using each night.
Finally fruit on my gooseberries, this was their last chance, each year the plant has been eaten by sawflies. I could do with the huge pot they are in for our rhubarb, but I will wait until end of season sale to get another huge pot.
I moved our blackcurrant bush onto our decking, with my other fruits, I was concerned the birds might have a feast later when the berries are ripe, we feed the birds at the back of the garden, plus a cheeky squirrel is often at the peanuts. But they don't often come onto the decking.
I have French Marigolds in my new planter, these are growing nicely.
This is a fruit and veg basket from TK Max, much nicer as a plant stand.
Another look at my tulips, these are lasting for ages,
the pot next to it has 3 box plants, I want to make a low design,
which will take a bit of time.
I also tidied my herb bed, the naughty squirrel digs in the 5 pots and can pull out newly planted herbs. I cut strawberry collars to size and popped them around the plant, looks really good and hopefully will stop any digging.
I have sorted a couple of places where Purdy was watching the fence, area's where it looks as if rats can get through, I know I'm not going to be able to stop them, but if we can keep the numbers down.
My last two post were so negative, but as you know I love my garden and enjoy time outside.
Both Saturday and Sunday afternoon's and evenings was spent relaxing outside, Saturday with hubby, and a nice BBQ, Sunday I was home alone, and relaxed in our recliners for ages.
Today we are walking to our local Co-op, after that Will, mummy and daddy back off their holiday are coming to walk to the castle and then later a BBQ, all so very relaxing.
I do hope your long weekend is as much fun.
