Pics That Should Have Gone With Yesterdays Blog!

The patio all tidied up

the path down to the chickens all brushed and weeded!

The new pond pump, which still needs to be re-sited.

but after 24hours has really helped clear the pond, look....
it has a UV light as well so whatever that does to the pond will take a little while longer!

If you remember a week or so ago I spent some time in the greenhouse planting seeds etc. well look whats been going on....

these are my Heritage Peas and Trail of Tears French Beans, now the reason I have a pic of them is because these plants have grown from seed I saved! I am thrilled as I had never seed saved before and wasn't sure if I had stored them correctly, I obviously did!!!!

My sweetpeas have slowed considerably, but that is because they have had there little cover off, as they where getting too big!

Here we have 5 sections, section one closest to the camera has a stray tomato plant, section 2, more tomatoes,they where sold as specifically for outdoor growing and when you look at the next pic you can see what sturdy characters they will be. Then I am really surprised about section 3, as you can just see aubergine plants popping through!!

This is all tomato's, bit sad really!!

Finally my onions.
Right must dash K is leaving to go back to Uni, so chaos surrounds us!!!

Brilliant - your garden looks wonderful - great to have all that paving - saves messing around with the mower!

Seedlings are all doing great.

I keep meaning to post up mine - but got a bit carried away with the quails.

Everything looks great! What is the name of those especially sturdy tomatoes? I stuck my tom seedlings out in the garage under the light, but the return of cold weather means the garage is colder than they like. They're getting that purple color and asking to be brought back into the house. Enjoyed the earlier chicken photos too! What characters!

What a lovely long garden, I love long narrow gardens, they always hold a sense of charm.
Pond looks great, fish will be happier.
Yours seeds have done well, havn't they, apart from the one tray. Mine are not too bad. I am growing things mainly for my Dad as the rabbits are such a pain with veggies, its just not worth the hassle. Sigh.
