I’m drowning in Courgettes, and I’m spiralizing them as fast as I can go…. but I fear this is only the start!
The first harvest of 2017, and my new garden, has happened!
The Courgettes are thriving but they’ve come under attack from blackfly, and the Rosemary has a beetle infestation.
I’m beginning to drool as the Courgette ‘Black Beauty’ plants are beginning to flower and form baby courgettes, but the garden pests are queuing up.
The bank holiday sees me spend 4.5 hours in the garden playing catch-up with nature.
A new blank garden has so many jobs to do – so I’ve begun breaking the lawn, and zoning off areas for vegetables, lawn, and flowers, and I’ve built a raised bed.
It’s time to sow the French Beans and to tackle my Antirrhinum forest.
Giving an old Erin Eco seed kit a chance, leaves me with dozens of salad seedlings that’ll need a new home.
It’s time for the Courgettes to be pricked out, and potted on, but not all of them are ready, and the Tomatoes are up!
The Courgette ‘Black Beauty’ seedlings are up, and so begins the next hurdle…
The garden springs to life indoors and out.
The propagator takes its first batch of seeds, as I plan for a garden I don’t yet know.
