My fruits and vegetables are growing nicely, we have hot weather and the climate in the greenhouse is tropical but as long as we keep watering well everything is growing.
THE GRAPES ARE GETTING BIGGER, THEY WILL BECOME DARK BLUE, THERE ARE NOT BIG AND BEAUTIFUL BUNCHES BUT THEY TAST GOOD
AND SO ARE THE TOMATOES
MORE TOMATOES BUT OF ANOTHER KIND
AND THE BELL PEPPERS
AND THE COURGETTES
THE MAGGI PLANT (LEVISTICUM OFFICINALE) IF YOU LIKE TO MAKE YOUR OWN SOUP THIS PLANT IS REALLY THE BEST TO GIVE TASTE TO YOUR SOUP, IT IS A BIG PLANT THOUGH, UP TO 2 METERS.
THESE ARE THE LEAFS OF THE MAGGI PLANT YOU NEED ABOUT A FOOT OF A STEM WITH LEAFS FOR 2 LITRES OF SOUP.
THE SAGE IS THRIVING BETWEEN THE LEAFS OF THE YELLOW COURGETTES
I REALLY NEED TO MAKE SOUP SOON, LOOK AT ALL THE CELERY ! BUT IS IS JUST TOO HOT AT THE MOMENT !
AND I NEVER HAD BIGGER FIGS BEFORE BUT THAT IS COS OF THE HOT WEATHER WE HAVE BEEN HAVING FOR A FEW WEEKS ON END.
How is your veggie garden comming along ?
Thanks for visiting my garden !
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…..
THE SMALL TWIGS YOU SEE AND THE RIBBONS AND STUFF IS TO KEEP THE BIRDS OUT, THAT WORKS WELL BUT I WISH I COULD DO SOMETHING AGAINST THE SLUGS !!!!
And ofcourse my pride and joy ; my fig tree !
Have a great day all !!
Sorry I haven been reading your blogs lately but I am up to my eyes in renovation work. I did manage to take a few pics in the garden this week.
THESE ARE NOT WINTERGREEN BUT SO PRETY IN SPRING WHEN THE SUN SHINES THROUGH
STILL IN BLOOM AFTER 2 MONTHS
WHITE GERANIUM, I NEVER BOUGHT IT SO I THINK IT IS A GIFT FROM THE BIRDS
FIRST COURGETTE FLOWER IN MY GREENHOUSE
ALSO IN THE GREENHOUSE, THE BEGINNING OF A BUNCH OF BLUE GRAPES
I hope you are all enjoying your garden !
Last year I had about the same amount of flowers on my mini apple tree and I had only 1 fully grown apple, I could have had 2 but my grandson plucked one when he thought it was ripe when it was the size of a ping-pong ball !! So I am looking forward to this years “crop” 😀
HERE IS MY MINI APPLE TREE COVERED IN BLOSSOMS, WE RECEIVED IT AS A GIFT FROM SOMEONE, IT IS REALLY PRETTY WHEN IN BLOOM.
HERE YOU HAVE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE BUDS, AREN’T THEY CUTE ???
Thanks for visiting !
