2017 Seed & Plant List
Im looking out the window on my only day off this week at the pouring torrential rain :( I was so itching to get some work done on my plot. I will have to be content with looking at your lovely pictures instead x
Hi and welcome erbitrude, (an intriguing name), thank you for commenting. Yesterday we had some really heavy downpours too and today it's rather miserable outside so I will have to content myself with looking at the photographs too.
Wish you would come over and edge some of my perennial beds - lovely job you have done!
I'll book a plane ticket for Martyn as soon as I can, Margaret :-)
Love that first shot with the autumn coloured leaves. Are they blueberries in the foreground? I have a plant I thought I'd lost in the neglected fruit cage.. it's suddenly emerged as a beacon of red.
I can see beds starting to empty now, though you've still got plenty that are full of produce too, more than I've got on my plot.
They are blueberries, Jessica and behind them the trees are three pears. I don't think there is anything that will rival a blueberry bush in full autumn clothing.
You still have peas flowering! Will they mature OK this late in the year? I'm glad I don't have all those edges to clip. (The main advantage of my raised beds + shingle arrangement.)
The peas are a late experiment, Mark. We had lots of seed left and so decided just to put them in and see what happened. We have already been surprised that the plants look so thick and lush and are full of flower and we already quite a few pods have developed. I don't know whether these will actually swell though -'we will see.
Your garden is lovely to look at. I know it is hard work but you and your husband have done a really nice job at gardening! It inspires me to work harder in our garden :)
Thank you, Juliet not having to go to work really does help. :-)
I think your plot is gorgeous all the time---love the tidiness after cleanup begins.It's lovely.
Thank you Sue. Obviously the photographs are of the best bits. :-)
Your plot is still productive.
For a little while longer, Endah
Calm and no rain here today, so means I can go cut back the roses that rocked like bill~io the last couple days. Your plot looks very clean and neat, all tidied up for winter.
There are still some parts that need attention, Deborah It is murky and miserable here today but they haven't had a strong winds. By the way do you prefer Deborah, Deb or Debs?
Oh it's interesting to see the bare (well getting barer) bones Sue as the year progresses. Your plot looks so neat and well tended.
It's amazing how quickly things change Anna
I can just imagine all the hard work that has gone into maintaining such a huge allotment! It's looking pristine!xxx
There is still lots of stuff to clear away and tidy up, Dina now it is a bit wet and soggy.
The plot still look good at the moment! Still have some to be harvested! ;)
