Well I have spent a very brief period down the allotment to water the greenhouse ans pick some of the enormous squash and whilst I was there I took a few pictures for you to see how things got on without me.
|the tomatoes have started to |
ripen in the greenhouse.
|Chilli peppers forming|
|I have some good sized bell |
peppers this year.
|the pepino have started to form|
fruits...looking forward to trying
|the pineapple lantern berry has |
produced plenty of fruits...not
sure if I like them much though.
|Third time lucky for the caulis.|
|the parsnip tops are looking healthy.|
|the squash plants had a huge |
party whilst I was away and got
extremely big...good job we like
it a lot!
|the celeriac seems to be making |
a bit of a come-back...I wonder
if there is any root to it though??
|Pansies add a lovely bit of |
colour near the greenhouse.
|This cut and come again salad |
got devastated by caterpillars
just before I went away but it's
making a valiant try at
|I didn't get the broad beans |
picked before I went away and
now they need to come down...
I will save seed for next year
..these have been great plants.
|Both the baby and sweetcorn |
are finally starting to form
|My runner beans are a bumper |
crop this year!
|the squash plants are all |
|I sowed three pumpkin seeds out |
of the same packet...
this is one of the plants that grew.
|This is another of those seeds out |
of that pumpkin packet.
|I did manage to get one pumpkin |
plant out of the packet though!!
|Despite never being netted the |
brassicas are doing well.
|My newly planted strawberries are |
starting to fruit again. this time it's
nice sized juicy fruits so I may get a
picking off them this year after all.
|the ruby chard is looking healthy.|
|All the beans are producing |
well though I have found the
ying yang and purples to be
quite stringy so I probably
wont grow these again
|Leeks are fattening up nicely.|
|The beetroot has finally started |
to look like there might there
might be something
beneath the ground too.
|The onions are ready to be pulled up.|
