    And some more

    I was hoping some potatoes would be starting to peak through but none yet


    It's a shame I can't upload a video as we have a blackbird nesting a the side of the greenhouse and I've have him flying from the top of the greenhouse going into their nest
    Thanks

    Glad yous like the video.
    Hazel I've had to plant out 20 odd sunflowers already as they were getting really big and they are doing great.  We'll be planting out the sweet peas tomorrow and while I'm doing that Hels is potting on some of the flowers as we will need the space in the greenhouses. 
    On a personal note I've just had another check up at the hospital and its great news another "all clear" which me and Hels are over the moon with. 
    Don't worry Hels keeps me a watch on me so I can't over do things 😁
    Thanks

    Hello Everyone 
    Just a quick update 
    Everything is growing great here are some photos for you to look at 
    We tried this last year with the tomatoes cucumbers and chillies . Had the buckets with holes in the bottom sitting in water and the results were great.  No brown spot on the tomatoes as they got a constant supply of water . Whereas the previous years we either under watered or over watered and got brown spot on a lot of fruit. So this worked a treat.

    And finally 

    The first potatoes yessssss

    Thanks

    Hello Everyone 
    Been busy up the garden today . I built a what was gonna be a leek trench but I'm using it for lettuce . After spending a couple of hours filling it up with a mixture of compost,  soil and fish blood and bone mixed in . It looks the part

    Thanks

    Hello Everyone 
    It's been great to see the garden looking a lot better . Still got some painting to do but I'll do that as the summer rolls on.
    Everything is growing great we have 40 out of the 110 potatoes we planted popping up .All the veg is out except the sweetcorn which we'll plant out near the end of the month.  We have already harvested the radishes which grew really quickly. 
    The flowers on the other are now just starting to get bigger . We have planted out 35 sunflowers and a load of sweet peas so we should have a great display this year
    Here are some photos 

    And finally look at this 

    Hundreds of baby spiders . Tiny little yellow ones
    Thanks
