I, quite frankly, rarely think of a relevant title for my posts but I have realised that most of my posts seem to happen on a Monday probably because it coincides with Dave going off to play football. So today's post gets a title, ok a bit of an unimaginative one but it's something I may work on.
I was saying to another blogger (Niamh at http://vegplots.blogspot.co.uk/) that one of the great things about blogging is how you can look back and see how things have progressed and come on. I look at photos I took 2, 3and 4 months back and then realise that those little seedlings that took up space in my kitchen during February, March and most of April are now sitting proud and bushy in my garden with the promise of something good and tasty just around the corner. In the words of Jamie Oliver, "Happy days".
I'm really pleased with the nasturtiums, they are serving me well as this picture with a whole bunch of black fly will testify. I have not used any bug spray this year and I'm glad for it. I've found that I haven't needed to, the only significant infestations have been these black fly which are also on some of the cosmos and the sunflower, all of which I can live with if they're staying off my edibles.
A week on from separating the 3 maskotka (must check the spelling for that) toms whose leaves were a blotchy yellowy green, all 3 plants are doing well and looking a much healthier shade. They survived the manhandling and re homing, just goes to show that some plants can take it.
Elsewhere in the garden.......
|The "June drop" must have happened in May for us because we still have 4 apples. Here are 2, well protected from that darn squirrel!|
