Summer 2016!

The garden needs a GIANT overhaul, since having a baby I did nothing to it, I let nature crawl all over my raised beds,  and barring the passing and aquiring of chickens nothing much happened. So here I am, back on the blog and back in the game. Did you miss me? Oh  well...Here're a couple of pictures from this weekend:

Salsify have self seeded across the patch, the roots are big and the flowers are about 3ft! They open in the mornings and close in the afternoons!

Ok so my fences sorely need a paint, but I did pretty them up a bit with some recycled bottle top flowers. 

My dwarf cherry tree has never yielded a single cherry, now I know why, pigeons!! I have fixed loads of holographic tape to the mid parts of the branches where they have yet to reach, and a wind catcher we bought on holiday. I'm determined to eat at least one flippin' cherry!

  1. I had a few salsify last night - I remember why we left them! Nice, but it's much fiddly to get the skins off for such little roots.

    Dig, dig, dig all the beds.
