IN THE PATCH

Yesterday I spent the morning weeding and pulling up some vegetables.

Sadly this year's garlic crop was very poor indeed, the bulbs are small and a lot were rotten, I guess I expected more as last year's crop was fantastic.

The onions and leeks weren't much better, about a month ago I noticed they both had gone to seed overnight! I only have a few onions drying and some of those are ones that went to seed that I will use in stocks etc.

On a more positive note, the tomatoes are looking lovely, I like to have a longer season and plant tomatoes in the hot-house as well as outside in the raised beds.

Sophie and I picked our first lot of loganberries for the season, yummy! The raspberries should be ready in a few days.

My luffas are growing well it will be interesting to see how well they produce.

  1. The weather we have had lately hasn't been good for gardening or the garden. The wind! My roses have all blown and I have just started dead heading them for Christmas (hope they bloom again) and I have weeds galore. I must admit, I just spent 30 minutes out there and got nearly half my back bed done - Just.must.do.it! I hope to plant out some pots of colour (petunias) in the next couple of days then the garden will look nice for Christmas. I am starting to stress about Christmas lunch - we have 24 adults and 14 children to feed! Of course, everyone chips in but it is still stressful until the food is on the table and everyone has had a few...
    I am lucky, all of my family get along and really enjoy the day so that's good!

    I am envious of those hothouse tomatoes!
