There is some progress to show in the garden, but I really do feel overwhelmed with the weeding that I dare not show you the other half of the garden. D is also getting a bit mift with the landlord who still hasn't moved some of the abandoned piles of rubbish in the garden. This then is having an impact on D's wanting to work in the garden, so I feel like I am left to do some of it myself, like the canes and wigwams for garden peas below.
So other than sowing some more seeds (for update see here), I haven't done much in the garden either.
Some broad beans beginning to flower.
Meteor peas beginning to climb the cane.
Some leeks growing in pots. Later they will be transferred into dug ground, probably at my Dad's allotment.
Nasturtiums - I like them.
Borlotti beans wanting to be transferred into the ground too, another one for the allotment.
Swiss Chard and Kale.
I didn't have any seeds for Brussels sprouts
or Scarlet Runner Beans, so I purchased these from the greengrocers at the weekend. There are going to be a number of vegetable plants that I will have to buy this year. For a start my Gold Rush Courgettes and Squash plants seems to be suffering from slug attacks.
Next year, I hope to be more organised and maybe by then, I will get a proper Greenhouse once again, for now - the window ledges inside of the house will have to do. In my next garden post, I would like to show you progress of the tomatoes, carrots, cabbages, salad leaves, as well as the seeds given to me by fellow bloggers.
