I am really pleased to report that my 5op chilli plants that I bought in the summer are now looking like this.
As I hadn’t time to prepare the beds when the plants were ready my squashes and courgettes went into a wheel barrow and some large pots. They are looking like this.
These are at an advantage being by the back door, watering is easy. I’m looking forward to the fruit now that I have got all those flowers 🙂 By the way, these are all growing in my home made compost!
Well it was at last time to pick them….
…..we didn’t want them to get frost bite did we? They are actually bigger than they look in this photo too!
I haven’t been doing things in the garden for a while because of art related commitments. As it was a nice day today I thought I would do a bit of pottering and look what I saw …..
….and it’s just growing and growing….
….perhaps I should have a compost especially for growing squashes!
Here are our lovely squashes, harvested from our garden a few days ago. We gathered them in because of all the rain. Not as big a harvest as I would like but a good effort. More compost next year!
Keith is just chopping one up at the moment (as I have a broken chopping arm) ready to make some soup.
