Sunny Sunday in the Garden

It is thee most beautiful day here today, the sun is shining and my garden is looking lovely, the tulips have finally emerged and they are a gorgeous purple colour..

I have quite a few dandelions kicking around too.. but have left them growing on purpose as they will provide the rabbits and chickens with some greenage 🙂

There is a mound of chives at the top end of the garden and they are just about to burst into flower..

and finally the welcome sign on the outside of my craft workshop 🙂

I’m heading back into the garden now to cut the grass and sow a few herbs, chillies and flower seeds in the greenhouse 🙂

Veggie Growing Update…

I have been busy in the greenhouse today, potting on the seedlings

Firstly we have the Courgettes, I have around a dozen plants, last year was so wet here that my courgettes were a bit of a disaster, the flowers came and the fruits formed, then, promply rotted away, so fingers crossed that this year is better and not so rainy!.   Its my plan to put 10 plants out into the raised beds and keep a couple in the greenhouse, just incase.

  

Next we have the Coriander or Cilantro as its known in other parts.   My daughter planted the seeds and they are thriving away nicely, i’ll be transferring this clump into a bigger pot this coming week.

   

My tomato plants are growing like mad, I have several different varieties growing here…

Gardners Delight

Microtom

Moneymaker

Totem &

Yellow ones who’s name has escaped me (my memory is shocking..will probably remember 2 days time) 🙂 

  

My early peas are doing just grand too, these will be hardened off over the next week then planted out into the raised bed.   I have another large batch on the go too which were sown 3 weeks later than these ones.

   

The chives look fantastic, tiny green spears shooting up towards the sky.. i’ll be re-potting these too next week, then hopefully find a space for them out in the garden somewhere.

 

My daughter’s sweetcorn is doing great too, i’ll be repotting these into bigger pots this weekend and wait for the weather to warm up before planting them into the garden.
