An update on our second summer of gyo.....
I'm actually pretty pleased at how things have gone after a bit of a rocky start to the year. Runner beans are now flowering after being decimated umpteen times but whether we actually get some remains to be seen, french beans have sort of climbed and have had some strange goings on with the leaves but we've been getting a reasonable crop off them. Mange tout once they decided to germinate were good and cropped well. Courgettes put up a lot of leaves
i would like some wee help on fruit trees,i live in central scotland and i am a novice gardener but would like to grow my own apple and cherry tree in my front garden where it will get lot of sun if theres no clouds.any info would be great im hoping to pick some fruit next year with my wee girl.thanks:)
A day off work & no rain means another journey into the hell that is the garden.
Armed with wellies, thick gloves & pruning shears i shall enter the land that time has forgot & hope i return. On days like this i remind myself of the plans we have drawn up & imagine the beautiful veg plot that awaits me. Until then i pacify myself with a nibble of the massive juicy blackberries that are in abundance. I have had to take to wearing purple nail varnish to disguise the staining

Ok, here goes..........
Sweetcorn ended up being a total disaster, I only really got to eat around 5 or 6 good cobs, the chickens had the rest. I've no idea what went wrong but I can only think that I didn't give them enough water.
Chard did very well..... just didn't really get on with the taste.
Courgettes, I must of had over 200 no. by now..... and they are STILL going.
