We spent a few hours in the brief but enjoyable spot of sun doing a bit of tidying and thinning out of the various veggies, that had taken off because of all the rain. We started off by weeding the potato bed and planting the last of the seed potatoes. We used some Maris pipers … Continue reading A Quick Tidy Up
Most of the seeds have been planted and we have a lot that have started sprouting. We are definitely eager to see the difference this year with the hula hoop netted frames Tony made, after a lot of our veggies either got demolished by birds or caterpillars last year. We feel like we’ve given them … Continue reading The Greenhouse Life
In our last post, Tony showed off his awesome creations for keeping pests and birds off our veggies. We have since been out and sowed most of the seeds for the veggies we going to grow this year. As we used the first large raised bed for the potatoes, we decided to mix it up … Continue reading Sunshine’s Out and Here We Go Again 😊
Hi all, hope everyone is safe and well. After last years experimentation on the potatoes, we decided to change the way we wanted to grow them. Instead of growing in bags (which didn't yield a big crop just a couple of meals) we want to try for a bigger crop. Having built two large raised … Continue reading Raising our Hopes
Oak tree update. This was the seedling on 10th of December: Compared to 20th December: Look at that beauty go! Shooting up so fast, and won’t be long before the others follow suit.
We decided to go out for a walk and see what autumn goodies we could forage, but also keeping in mind that we might be a little late for most of the seasonal yummies. We knew we had missed the hazelnuts we had planned to collect but never got round to going and getting, but … Continue reading Autumn Foraging
With this being our first year growing, and we had a late start due to the fact Tony and myself had to isolate separately in the first months of lock down, there were many mistakes that were made, and many plans that had been put on hold. The big plan that we really missed out … Continue reading Our First Year
Well hello all!! It has been a while since we last wrote a post, but we have lots to update you on, so here is what we have been up to lately. We have been on a few foraging walks. We collected Rosehips from some Japanese Rose bushes that we found, which are currently in … Continue reading 3….2….1….We Have Produce
After blitzing the garden as best we could early in lock down, its now just a case of letting things grow and hope for the best. Some of our earlier plans were put on hold and unfortunately will probably stay on hold until next year now. With the weather being rubbish again all there has … Continue reading Peppers, Peppers and Oh Yes.. Peppers.
Wow what a scorcher today is! We’ve been tidying the garden up. Mowed the lawns and trimmed a section of the massive hedge. Pulled out some more small and unwanted bushes that were growing under the camellia bush. We’ve also planted the only 2 surviving cauliflower in the space where the onions didn’t grow. Now … Continue reading Just a Trim
