A Busy Few Days In The Garden

Hi everyone,

Sunday again, the weeks keep going around so quickly. The weekend has gone by so quickly again. But luckily I did make a fair bit of progress. Here’s the met office forecast for the week ahead!

I’m writing this straight from my brain, no planning but I’m going to tell you what I’ve been up to in the last week.

Gardening

If you are a regular reader of my blog  you will have noticed I haven’t posted for a week, firstly I would apologise for this I have been quite busy (As you can see in the photo below)!

Sorry back to gardening, the greenhouse is absolutely jam-packed with plants and seeds because the old plants have moved out to the planters and we have planted new! Also, we tidied our greenhouse & little allotment at the same time.

From the photos you can see that I have planted lots of amazing new plants, and here is a list of what has been newly planted over the last week:

  • Radish
  • Beetroot
  • Purple Carrots
  • Fun Carrots
  • Swede
  • Cauliflower
  • Ox eye Daisy’s (Flowers not veg)
  • Gold Alyssum (Flowers not veg)

I also moved some of my plants from the greenhouse into pots that are now on the fences around the allotment.

Something that is really impressive is the fact I grew a watermelon, I was shocked that its grown so quickly!!

Did you really believe me?

What is even more impressive is that I have strawberries on my strawberry plants already.

I bought the Kitchen Garden magazine yesterday and look how generous they were with the seeds, all these with one magazine!!!!!

When I went for a little evening walk up to our little allotment i noticed how big some of the peas and beans were coming on in the greenhouse. So this morning I went up and repotted them into bigger pots with canes to keep them trained & upright.

The potatoes are also doing very well, most of them have been covered up right to the top of the sacks to they will just keep growing up  into lovely fresh potatoes.

My dad’s friend Joe, from work, gave me some King Kong sunflower seeds so I would like to give a big thanks to Joe and Angharad.

I also did some more repotting of my mum’s rhubarb into nice big terracotta pots, and put these in the middle of our little allotment with the sacks of potatoes.

Operation

This week my dad had an operation, so he can’t drive and is off work. I am utterly fed up with having to be his slave, as he tells me he can’t do anything and I have to do everything for him. He can’t even do any gardening, so it’s all down to me and my Mum.

I’ve got loads more to write about but haven’t got time today, so I’ll do another blog in the next few days.

Hopefully the weather will be good for the garden and my plants will continue to grow as they have been.

Don’t forget to let me know if you have any tips/advice on how I can improve my garden.

Keeeeep gardening!!
