Re: Late Summer Bits and Bobs.

You'll have to claim forgetfulness if you get invitations to other family bubbles althiugh in case of further lockdowns i guess it makes sense to join with those who live closest who can help you out most easily in case of emergencies.

Re: Leeks

Mine are looking ok so far this year. This time last year most of them were already going mushy from that leek bug infestation. Have made up my miNd to try and use them up earlier this year to prevent losing them. Leek and potato soup is a usual favourite but alas freezers are pretty much fully stoc...

Re: Late Summer Bits and Bobs.

Yes, absolutely right Geoff but a somewhat anxious time for new parents expecting their first arrival in the current conditions being forecast, I think everybody's' longer term plans just have to be on hold for the time being. With people being increasingly encouraged to report rule breakers its not...

Re: Before and after!

Looks like you have more growing space In the front garden yet to plan. Are you planning more edible or decorative flowers? If you're open to the road where everything is visible, be mindful of potential theft if growing vegs. A sad indication of today's world, at least over here and especially in p...

Re: Before and after!

Your design also makes crop rotation easier which is another feature of healthy vegetable growing. I think youVe done an excellent job Elmigo and can just be proud of how your first season has worked out. I know that greenhouse probably swallowed up outdoor growing space you might have valued space ...

Re: Before and after!

I hope you feel the value of the crops picked will be commensurate with all the effort put in although I guess that is always a debatable point !!

Re: Before and after!

Well done Elmigo. That back garden is an absolute transformation and i hope you,ve been enjoying the results of your Labour. And a front garden herb area is a good idea. Just being able to step outside for fresh herbs is a lovely convenience.

Re: Late Summer Bits and Bobs.

Stravqig that's a truly awful story and I can't imagine how stressful a period it must have been for you. It certainly shows the worst aide of human nature.

I hope things settle down for you now and that gradually you start to rediscover your gardening "muse" !

Re: Where did it go?

Re: Kiwano (horned melon)

I had a couple of brave flowers on mine but they died without being pollinated and no more appeared so that sadly was the end of my project as my other two plants died on me.

Re: Kiwano (horned melon)

Goodness, that,looks like a bigger area than the whole of my veg plot! Should generate a few fruit though if you're lucky enough to have a warm September with no cold nights.

Nice picture of domesticity. I doubt the proud surveyor of a human harem of this size would be presiding over such a harmonious gathering!!

Re: Late Summer Bits and Bobs.

OH. I will take your word for it as 5.05 in the morning is usually an unknown experience for me. I do always tend to sleep in later during the winter though when the mornings are darker. As somebody who always needs more sleep than she usually gets, much as I love summer it,s a time of permanent sle...
