Garden update

The time has come, I decided this morning, to put the tomato and courgette seedlings out into the greenhouse to fend for themselves. This may be a big mistake. I think the danger of frost is more or less over now, but it’s hard to tell. I have no space in the garden to plant them, having got carried away and sown too many things, so I’m not entirely sure what will eventually become of them, but hopefully they’ll survive for a bit out in the wind and the rain.

Next to the greenhouse is a growbag full of early potatoes, and the main Maris Piper spuds into the bed in front of the greenhouse as well. Wilb promptly dug them up again, but I have now put them back where they belong.

On the other side of the garden, under the shade of a big fence, are some pea seedlings, which I planted straight into the ground earlier this month. They seem to be making an appearance, I have stuck labels in next to them so that hopefully I won’t accidently dislodge them later.

They’ve got a little way to go yet if they’re going to get to the proportions of Barbara’s peas over at If Only, come on little ones, you can do it!

  1. you planted yours outside so they’ll take a little longer to comeup but then should do fine, i cheated this year and started mine indoors as last year something ate 42 out of the 46 i planted….. this year i’m not leaving it to chance and i’m probably going to mother them a little too much!

    love barbara

    p.s. thanks for all your help at the weekend it was good to see you both, and good to get so much done!
