Looks like everyone picked one word for this new year so I picked one too :PEACE, that’s the word that suddenly came to me and because that is what we all need, without peace we can’t do anything but survive. So let us all try and make this world a better place and make peace happen !!!
When I was doing my round in the garden I suddenly saw a beautiful white flower between the leafs of my fig tree, when I did some further investigation I saw the top of a carrot and from there a long stem with a white flower and buds, I never sow carrots in the garden ( I do in the greenhouse but I use ribbons with seeds on) so these beautiful flower must be a present from the birds. Thank you birds ! I am going to sow a lot of carrot seeds in the garden now to have carrotflowers!!
Have a great week and keep cool as the temperatures are rising fast !!!
BLACK PEARL PEPPERS
I don’t know why but everything is growing like mad this year, in the garden and in the greenhouse. The only disadvantage are the snails, never had so many!!!
Here are some pictures of the greenhouse.
IF THEY TASTE AS GOOD AS THEY LOOK…
GRAPES, they will be dark blue when ripe, they look a bit odd but that is cos you don’t have to cut the excess grapes yourself, this grape loses the excess grapes it self (does anyone know what the english word is for this ?)
LONG BELL PEPPERS
There are other things growing in my greenhouse as well but that will be for another time.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting !
A FEW SHALOTTES, SEVERAL TYPES OF TOMATOES AND A FEW YELLOW COURGETTES
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND !!
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 !
