Garden pics….

29 May

I thought l would just put a load of photos l have taken of the garden over the past few days. There just seems to be so much going on in out there at the moment, especially after the rain we had recently. I am looking forward to the coming weeks as the veg plot in June and July gives us so much. What is looking good in your garden right now?

    I can’t believe your tomatoes are so far on, it won’t be long until you’re tasting them. Mine have got flowers on now and need potting up into their final positions. And the cucumber too, that’s just about ready for pulling. We’ve got rain today which is good for the garden. Everything seems to grow overnight when it’s been raining.

      Hi Jo, Its a wonderful time to be in the garden right now isn’t it. This rain has really helped. I am thinking of moving the tomatoes out of the greenhouse and taking my chances with them out in the veg plot. What do you think?

    Gosh, you’re way ahead me.
    My marmande toms are 8″ tall and all leaves, my Q’s are 3″ and my French beans are sulking ’cause its grey and damp again, but that’s the British weather for you, more clouds and rain again today.

    I love the dome and meadow, my willows are happy, only 2 years old, but doing really well. The prunings I put in water and they now have a mass of roots on them, so they are going into my son’s garden next week.

    Do Mr. Middleton’s advice/timings work with your weather conditions so far?

      Hi Annie,
      We really needed that rain! In fact its raining again this morning. The plants soak it up. Far better than tap water!
      The meadow looks great right now but my local farmer is coming to cut it soon for hay. Its natural, l haven’t sown any seeds.
      My willow is going great guns at last. I am sure you can see it actually grow in this weather!
      Re: Mr Middleton, its a very good question and one l will be answering in depth later this month, being the half way stage…already! So far though, its all within a week or two of each other and, of course, it all depends what l have managed to grow as well. I don’t have the room in my plot for everything that he suggests.
      Do you keep a blog? Good luck with your son’s willow.

    How about moving some of the tomatoes outside and leaving some in the greenhouse…just in case. I never bother with outdoor tomatoes as so many people suffer from blight, but as I always grow under cover I’ve never suffered from it yet, touch wood.
