  1. Back from holiday.... you'd think we'd been away for months.

    .. we've been to the US for 18 days and we must have had some sun and not much rain here because the pots were all dry, the grass has grown a lot, the honeysuckle has gawn' sprawling over next doors fence and the nasturtiums have gotten really large (we should have pulled them before we left). There are blackfly all over the gladioli and my poor potted fern looks like it is dead (I've put it into a container full of water). My Lilac too was in dire need of a long drink. Indoors there is a mountain ...
  2. Not well

    by , 27-09-2008 at 02:02 PM (Last Of The Summer Wine Allotment)
    Not been well recently, not even been able to go to plot, so this week I made a good go of it, cleared out both greenhouses and cleared a few beds. The skip is coming in 2 weeks, so I am moving rubbish towards the gate! Gordon hasnt been well, so I have been doing most of it on my own. Runner beans are still producing and I have lifted squashes, gourds and pumpkins and they are ripening in the greenhouse. It looks so empty in the greenhouses, reminds me the end of the season is here.

    Now I have time to take full interest in the garden and want to make the most of it before my ailing health takes over.

    Been a busy fortnight since last post

    Half the plot is now dug over - the rest will be done soon - have cleared most of the veggie patch at home - loads more to do

    Have been harvesting veggies at home and sowing etc for planting stuff out over the winter

    Still got broad beans and 2 varieties of peas to sow for overwintering - and then of course still got to plant them out, along with all the other stuff growing in the greenhouse

    Another ...
  5. Down on the Mudpatch

    by , 23-09-2008 at 01:56 PM
    Seeing as I am laid up with a back injury and can't do any gardening today, it seems like a good opportunity to start a blog record of my semi-successful gardening experiments .

    My raised borders are still very much in bloom despite not being finished until late july and all of the plants having been transfered in from the tubs. Not Ideal, but the shrubs and fuchias seem to be thriving, some of the stuff from the hanging baskets are doing well in the beds too, so now I have to plan ...
