Told you the blogging would be erratic! Still here though.
I have been meaning to post this for a while, finally here I am. These pictures were taken about a week ago.
Some things are looking a bit munched by the dreaded slugs. Somethings are not. Our slugs aren’t so keen on sweet peas – hurrah!
Certain things I planted from seed have failed to appear at all – sweetcorn, squash. And certain things I never got round to planting – celeriac. That accounts for the gaps in the boxes.
Others I think got eaten as soon as they germinated – dwarf french beans and carrots. The first lot of beans didn’t seem to germinate and the second were munched – I have two, weak-looking, little plants left. I am wondering if I would have more success if I started the beans in pots. More slug controls would help too obviously. The carrots were definitely there but are not there now!
Radishes have been incredibly easy to grow – shame the boys aren’t keen on them.
The peas are doing ok – bit slug munched but the first sowing are much happier now they have stuff to climb up and actually have flowers on them (no photo – sorry!). Sweet peas are doing well too but no sign of flowers yet.
Leaf salad (Italian mix) has grown well. I had an amusing (now, but not at the time) incident with a tiny slug when I used some of it one day – sadly it has put Little J off eating things from the garden at the moment.
Cabbages are pretty munched and I am wondering when I should pull up the golden beetroot. The things sown as plants have definitely done better than the seeds.
I would really like to get some more stuff planted but it’s looking unlikely for the next couple of weeks. But also looking forward to spending quality time in the garden with dear friends at the weekend…. soul food.
How does your garden grow??
