Veg patch gettin goin


the Raised bed has finally come together (cue trumpets)
and is starting to look good,

Still things to do before getting more stuff in the ground

Some of the smaller plants from the Scilly isles, Doing this window box for someone, needs a couple more flowers

and the raised bed is up n running
beans have already been nibbled! lol

I have added a longer leg on the end, might add a bit more to the middle leg.

from the far corner, more soil needed

moving stuff now into the cool zone

blocked off this side so now the chucks cant enter

And in the big poly, toms are on their way, bit behind but they’ll be up soon enough
This side is Gardeners Delight

on the other side some self sewn toms and cherry toms, and cucumbers now in, will add peppers later

bits n bobs corner, kiwi, fig, pomegranate, also have a ginger honeysuckle to go in

Letting the grape vines get some decent branches on, not to worried about grapes this year from these

more passion flowers coming on

constance elliot

and just potted up reserve veg

Toms are looking nice n green

new raised bed gate with a bit of fence

Over on the pond, flag irises now out

The spare plant bench is going well

Scenes of interest on the front..poppies

and look whos come for some milk

Watering can ; )

like the light on the poppies

and with light behind

sedum bloom in the foreground

Actually just seen another bud so thats one extra flower per year

The Venosa Violacea is just coming out, was out a bit earlier last year

I have to spray my raised bed woodwork with Jeyes Fluid Stevie,
neighbours cat used them as a toilet. Scratched all
my carrot seed up.
Most annoying.

That's a very handsome cockerel.

Am moved to wonder yet again, what do you do in all your spare time Steve?

Front door scene is really nice, as well, as neighbour´s pink poppies. Whar are those small pinky flowers creating a smal cloud just beside your yellow poppy?

I like your pond Stevie. How deep is it?

6 Jun, 2014


That is quite a production Steve. I like the window box but everything looks good.

Thanks folks

Db, Gnuts was lurking in there and tried to sit on the bed lol
Sg, just try n do a bit every day, : ) but my plan was to have the raised bed finished by march but i guess planting out now is ok, The cockrel has been know to attack, best not turn yer back
Kat, I think you are reffering to the saxifrage (southside seedling) gives alot of small flowers on one stem, and this one has a few stems : )
Linda, not ine but its only a couple of feet deep and in a hot summer drys up completely, not a chance so far

You are one busy boy, Stevie! The hard work is paying off, for sure.

Bit late arriving Stevie but thats often the case this time of the year, everythings doing well for you, is the cockerel a new guard for you, I was wondering which one would win if they did have a bit of a tussle ??
