Spring Planting

I thought I'd put a post on this blog and see if it ignites anyones interest!
We've planted Sweet Peas and I'm hoping they are going to climb up the coned trellis, we've never had a lot of luck with Sweet peas though!

These are our Broad beans, we've put the bamboo canes in for the runner beans but they're still in the greenhouse, they're not quite big enough to go in yet.

I bought these hanging pots of strawberries last year at the end of the season, they were buy one, get one free, so they were a bargain. They've been in the greenhouse over the winter and we've got them out and hung them all on a spare bird feeding station, well, it wasn't really spare! I put all the bird feeders onto my other feeding station and earmarked this one for the strawberries!

I put these on because I'd heard on the weather forecast that we were going to have rain, unfortunately since then it hasn't stopped so we've not got a lot else done!

Sacrificial crops

I've had a garden ramble over at my place.

garden update....

Potatoes, salad leaves and tomatoes all doing well. Some of the beans and peas have been eaten (slugs/snails) garlic, shallots still o.k...

Had a disaster though.... it was really windy here last night and this morning the mini greenhouse has lost its cover and contents (shelves.... trays with seedlings) I have found the 3 pumpkins plant but not the peppers or tomatoes :0)
