Planting in the rain…..

This weekend has been a bit of a wash out.  Saturday was a non starter as far as the plot goes so I had to go down today.

I took so beef tomatoes that we had been given down to plot on.  7 in total, nicely potted on and in the green house.

I also planted 2 cucumbers and 4 squash plants into grow bags in the cold frame.

We still have more tomato plants and squash to put in!

That was enough for the afternoon but before I left I took a quick look around the plot.

Everything is coming on nicely.  Just need a nice long summer now please!!!

Stay tuned folks for more blog updates……

FRUIT CAGE!!!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the fruit cage is constructed!!

Its taken a while, its not perfect but it is ours and it is great!!

All we need to do now is net it and get some more fruit plants and we’re off.

We will have strawberry gutters all the way through on the inside support posts for even more fruit!DSC_3124DSC_3123DSC_3122

We had a load of wood chip delivered a few days before and this needs to be spread around now to cover the area completely in an effort to suppress the weeds!

We have topped up the flower border and it now looks so much better, especially with the addition of some more flowers.

Most of the veg beds are now weeded and planted, thanks to Mrs Weston.

We have 4 more beds to rescue from the fast growing weeds that have popped up in the last 3 – 4 weeks.  If only the veg grew as fast eh?

During a small break in the work, I noticed a rather large bee busying itself on the blackberries.

It was considerably bigger than all the other bee’s that were around.  A queen maybe?

Anyway, stay tuned folks as the next event will be the netting and more fruit plants being introduced!
