I have been busy this last week in both garden at home and on the plot.. Plus its School Summer holidays and I have been playing with my Granddaughter more and just enjoying Life.
Here are a few of the things gathered in the garden and that are getting ready for picking.
Click the photo’s to enlarge or hold your cursor over them to reveal the headings.
The Dahlia’s are out in abundance right now and I have three vase’s full at the moment .. More to go to my daughters this evening and the neighbours have loved receiving little bunches too I have an updated photo of the lovely blooms to show next time..
The first flush of raspberries on the early flowering have now all been picked and frozen, I cut out all the old stems that had finished fruiting in the middle of last week. And await the next lot of fruits which are forming into flowers right now to gather later in the autumn.
The strawberries have done well also this year from our moving the bed and planting the runners.. And we have had our fair share of strawberry flans and added them into trifles as well as enjoying them with ice-cream
Bell Peppers are growing well .
Here are just two of the huge cauliflowers that were ready.. They were beautiful.
The Kidney Beans are now much more mature than you see here.. And I got my first pickings off of them this week..
The outdoor tomatoes near the green house were the surplus ones that wouldn’t fit into the green house. They too have doubled in size and are in full flower.
The next photo’s are of our second small row of Peas which we left under the Cloche and sort of forgot about.
This was a row of small peas which had been under a cloche . There were more weeds than peas as you can see in my next photo
I decided to weed them out
Weeding out the Peas
Now I added a wire fence and I ran some string in and out of some sticks to secure and help them grow upwards..
We had a huge bucket full of Peas I podded and froze from our other row this week too
The Universe is always listening to me, even in my garden.. Last year a couple of plots down from us were some wonderful large poppy heads I so wanted some of those poppies but never saw the owner of the plot to ask him if I could have some seeds..
The Universe sorted it though for look what sprung up at the side of the greenhouse
Wishing you all a Wonderful Weekend and Happy Gardening until next time
