Have a great weekend all enjoy your garden and thanks for stopping    by !

 

LOOK WHAT I FOUND TODAY

This morning when I was doing my round in the garden I saw a little white spider on one of my fuchsia plants, I think it is a crab spider.

CAN YOU SEE THE SMALL CLUMP OF BLACK ON ONE OF THE SMALL LEAFS ? COULD THESE BE HER EGGS ???? NORMALLY SHE IS WHITE BUT SHE CAN CHANGE INTO BRIGHT YELLOW ON A YELLOW FLOWER ! SHE NEEDS 10 TO 24 DAYS TO TURN YELLOW AND ONLY 6 DAYS TO TURN WHITE AGAIN.

FRUIT AND VEG IN THE 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

PICTURES OF MY GARDEN

We are having a heathwave ! We go from cold to hot in one day, we can’t cope with it nor can the plants. And it has been extremely dry for a while, we live on sandy gound that dries out very quickly.But never the less, I enjoy it, everything grows and grows, with a little help of the waterhose ofcourse. We can eat outside morning, noon and evening with a nice view on the whole garden. What more do you want ??!
