Here’s a long awaited update from the green house.
These are red sweet peppers from bought seed. I don’t want to speak too soon but I think they are doing alright.
These are chilli peppers I got free from a magazine. ‘Demon Red’ There were only five seeds and I have three healthy plants from them. By the sound of their name, they are gonna be hot!
These are ‘Scotch Bonnet’ chillies, from my own saved seed. They are looking good. If you look carefully you can see little buds forming on the top of the plants 🙂
These are common red chillies, medium heat, from my own saved seed. I dried some of these before and they keep well.
Can’t wait until they start turning red. I must look after them carefully now so as not to loose the fruit!:-)
I’m so excited with the prospect of spring, when the sun comes out I feel so energized! I have started tidying up in the garden and sowed my first few seeds. New life is starting to appear.
One single tomato seedling,
this is rocket on the left and to the right of that you can just see some radish coming through.
We are heading for a wonderful time of year! 🙂
I’ve harvested my gooseberries, it turns out it’s quite a big job…
….and they are very spiky!
An amazing harvest of gooseberries this year 🙂
Well, here in Norfolk in the UK, the weather has been very gloomy and dull and the plants and vegetables are reluctant to grow.
I’ll show you the bright bits first. The chive flowers always are a treat.
The Aquilegia are one of my favourites as they flower for quite a long time.
The greenhouse is very slow this year, any taste of warmth though and the plants put on a spurt of growth.
I went out this morning for watering duty and something has been eating my chilli plants
and my courgettes
Life for plants is very hard and frustrating for humans.
A quick over view of what’s been happening in our garden.
It’s amazing how much chaos can be created when sorting the greenhouse inside and out.
A nice tidy lawn, so as not to get wet when hanging out the washing.
The chickens have found their favourite place.
We have enclosed the compost heaps, as the chickens liked to go in and scrape around sending it all out on the lawn.
And, for the finale, I have an aubergine! 🙂
