New Life



We are gradually starting to come out of lock down though we still feel unsure leaving the house unless we have to. The garden is still a place that uplifts our spirits and every morning I go out to see how it is grown during the night.

  In the morning I get up and fill the kettle with water to make tea and look out the window, on the sill are some sweet peas that fill the air with scent and bring joy to the morning





















They grow by the back door  and when they are about to flower the get cut to fill the jar to bring more scent to the kitchen
 The vegetables are growing with the peas and beans starting to get bigger, the potatoes grow on out of sight





















 In the raised beds the leeks have been planted and are starting to establish themselves, the bean seeds I planted are now sprouting


With new growth now coming out of the ground, there is still hope I will get a crop if a little later than I would have liked.
 The the greenhouse the salad leaf's are about spent and are starting to go to seed
 Beside the trough seed show new growth of the next crop of salad leafs
 The tomatoes cucumbers and carrots are now well established and get taller every day
and now I noticed the first truss on the tomatoes is showing fruit, will not be long before they get picked

  2. Your garden is so beautiful and productive. We have little tomatoes here too, and some small zucchinis on their way to being big enough for picking soon. We go out once or twice a week to the local food co-op. Everyone wears a mask there. The cashiers are behind plastic shields. We feel pretty safe, but think we'll be wearing masks for quite some time.

    1. Think mine will be a while yet. Quite a few people wear masks here and like you over there the cashiers are behind screens. I feel masks will be around for a while yet as well as it makes people feel a little safer

  5. Hello Billy!
    I am delighted with your garden. Vegetables grow great.
    I love sweet pea but it doesn't bloom yet.
    I limit visits to the store, but I always wear a mask and disposable gloves, I have a disinfectant liquid in my purse.
    I disinfect the car door handle and only get on.
    Hugs and greetings.

  7. Yes, Billy, I agree that even though lockdown restrictions are easing up there is still the need for caution. While I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible, there are still places I will not venture into for awhile. You have a beautiful home garden.
