Veggie Garden appreciating the rain.


Veggie Garden appreciating the rain.

I'll need to get those violas out soon, but they do a good job of hiding the young peas and cabbages from the Pigeons!

Not a great deal of variety this year. I've gone for Golden Beetroot, Lettuces, Red and Green Cabbages, Dwarf Peas, Curly Kale and both Annual and perennial kinds of Rocket. the Annual kind is supposed to be milder. But actually I like my salad leaves to have some taste. Globe Artichokes of course in the biggest bed. I think I might have to replace the peas. They have struggled in the recent cold spell. In the Greenhouse I have two kinds of tomatoes (Red Cherry -cordon and Red Alert - Bush variety) and some Bell Peppers called 'King of the North' but they never do well..don't know why I bother with them. Every year I think I shan't grow them and every year I end up thinking..maybe this year they will grow! Its just not warm enough for long enough for mediterranean veg. here. I've also got some Coriander in there.

Gosh Vjd? Thats quite a compliment! Thank you very much. The only problem I have with it is its very exposed in our windy garden, so I can't grow tall things like runner beans. But tbh, I'm not a fan of runner beans. :)
