We are trying to grow a bit of fruit and veg in the garden, we have a greenhouse where we grow a dark blue grape, tomato’s, courgettes, some herbs, cucumber and strawberries.
Outside we have a vegetable garden on leggs so that it is easy to remove weeds and thin seedlings.
AS WE CAN ONLY START PLANTING IN THE GREENHOUSE AFTER THE FROSTS, ABOUT MID MAY, THE TOMATO’S ARE ONLY HAVING FLOWERS AT THE MOMENT
THE COURGETTES ARE REALLY DOING WELL
OUR VEGGIE GARDEN ON LEGGS WITH SALAD, STRAWBERRIES, ONIONS, CELERY AND FENNEL, CARROTS…..

And ofcourse my pride and joy ; my fig tree !
Have a great day all !!
We are having a heathwave ! We go from cold to hot in one day, we can’t cope with it nor can the plants.

Here at Gerda’s Equine Rescue, we love all animals, but Peach holds a special place in my heart. At first, the empty eye socket on her right side would make me feel uncomfortable but the more I get to know her the less I even notice that small, superficial detail about this incredible horse.
