Always acknowledge when it is time to give up. And give up.
Filled with dreams of Spring 2018, I’ve found myself browsing and buying next year’s seed.
My first attempt at growing Squash Spaghetti Stripetti, keeps me in food into 2018.
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.
