I hope you all are keeping up your spirits at this bad time. Like everyone we are trying to stay in going out as little as possible and only going out for essentials. We make out own amusements and the garden is top of the list. A couple of weeks ago I showed you around my Garden where you would have seen our greenhouse. This week I'll show what we get up to in it and what we have planned next in our garden.
The Greenhouse was built last year for use this year and I have been trying to grow plants from seeds.
These were started in the house on the windowsill. Here on the top shelf are some sweet peas with parsley growing in the square pots
Above on the floor are a couple of Hydrangeas which were wintered in the greenhouse away from the frost, last year the got badly cropped by it. Outside you can see a pile of soil and wheelbarrow the cause of my back problem in digging a pond, it is a little better now.
Right my first experiment in growing tomato seeds and chillies, not sure how successful as I am a bit disappointed in them, last year the chillies were growing really well
More seed growing here. My feeling is I planted them too soon I managed to grow tomatoes from seed last year. Like I said this year is all an experiment with what I grow
These are more plants grown from seed on the top shelf
These are carrots that were grown in a seed tray the potted in old plastic bottles another little experiment to see how they grow
The next project was something my wife thought we should try, raised vegetable beds, the left hand photo shows how they came in a box of parts, I confess my son helped me build them and my wife dug out the area where they would go
This is the finished bed assembled ready to go in place
As we bought two here they are side by side full of the soil you saw through the greenhouse window and compost ready for planting. We will be planting Runner beans and leeks in the other. The bottled carrots you saw in the greenhouse will go around the edges of one of the beds. That is it for this week I will keep you updated on how things go with the growing.
Keep safe everyone
Keep safe everyone
