Garden Update - 10 weeks

blogged by me domestic goddess On 7/15/2009 10:16:00 AM

The beautiful weather we have been having here in the UK, with a mix of a few rain showers at night, has given the garden the boost it has needed, and makes a lovely change from the sodden, slimy garden we had last year!
Our vegetable beds are doing great, and we have been enjoying homegrown lettuce for the past couple of weeks. I think its birds that have been having a munch on my lettuces!. I have put CD's on my canes and sprinkled eggshells around the lettuces, but something is still making its way to our little gems!!

we have a wonderful array of veggies now;
- Lettuces ( Lollo Rosa, Little Gem)
- Carrots
- Spring Onions
- Beetroot
- Tomatoes
- French Beans
- Peas
- Potatoes
- Herbs ( Mint, Parsley, Tarragon, Basil, Rosemary)
- Cabbage

The garden is in full bloom also; lavender, trailing lobelia, hydrangea, pinks to name a few of my favourites.

We have just put some stepping stones in, as a path to the vegetable beds, cut from logs. My plan is to have lavender growing by the side of the logs. I have just planted my first cutting that i did in Spring, and will see how it grows, and hopefully take lots more cuttings next Spring.

I love my garden, even though I am a complete novice and am learning year by year. With such deep borders its a huge learning process!
Do leave my a comment posting links to your garden/vegetable patch, love to see your prize patch!

Thanks for stopping by

    This is a wonderful garden. I like the fact that you plant different kinds of vegetables and spices. Oh! And the flowers are beautiful.

    Your garden is beautiful and the flowers are pretty. Great job, you’ve learn a lot about gardening in just 10 weeks, and just look at what you’ve accomplished. Well done
