Early in the month I showed you my new growing space - click here if you missed that post.
Well let me show you some good progress
I dug this front part up a couple of weeks back and out of nowhere raspberry stalks have sprung up. Too many in fact, that I am trying to control them, as I want a vegetable patch, not a raspberry garden.
Here is the garden from the top end. I started the weeding and digging, and D finished it off just a few hours back. He's going to have a sore back tomorrow, its been a long while since he dug the ground. Like me, he is very excited to be growing fruit and vegetables again, but for him - its the greenhouse - he wants home-grown tomatoes. I think he will get some, but not in the quantities he's grown in the past (see here) - slowly slowly we will get there once again.
You can see the greenhouse at the front. Lots of seeds are sprouting, including tomatoes!
Below we have some sweet peas that are crying to come out of the seedling box. We will be building wigwams tomorrow for them to climb up on.
Oh something I did not show you in the previous growing space post, is our pergola, makes me feel oh la la. I love it - but D has other ideas. Because the strong gusts of wind early this year, the pergola has been given a good battering. Its not straight, so he is thinking perhaps removing it next year.
I hope not, as I am loving it and the climbing roses and clematis that is climbing all over it. are just going to look gorgeous when they bloom
And finally, somewhere for me to hang my recycled lanterns - I brought these withe me when we moved from Glasgow.
