Jane’s veggies and garden
Thought it would be easier to put some pics in a little blog to show how hard I’ve been working! Finished clearing the lane of the jungle of grass a couple of days ago. OH did the digging and I did getting the hardcore out of the roots – luckily the weather has been dry and the pebbles knocked out easily enough. This is the turning area for us and any delivery drivers.
The borage and rye grass I showed in a click the other day grows just outside the gate on the left.
Yesterday I put out 2 of the 3 courgettes I have for the coldframe and at the back of the coldframe are 3 Gardeners’ Delights, one Amish and one San Marzano tomato plants. The courgette for the middle spot is too small yet.
In what I call my ‘second’ greenhouse (don’t forget, both are half-size!) I’ve got 4 cucumber plants, some bush tomatoes and one Gardeners’ Delight. I’ve previously grown cucs in small raised beds the same as my tomato plant but decided to try these deeper plastic pots in the hope of improved yields.
The next photo is of the Gardeners’ Delight plants in the main greenhouse, taken on 2nd May and of course the plants have got a bit bigger by now.
Not sure what I’ll be doing today apart from potting up a spare courgette for my neighbour. I might go butterfly spotting. This is one from yesterday.
Have a lovely day, everyone!
