Its another predominantly green veggie garden this summer. Its held out well so far with the occasional rain thats not been that efficient.

Firstoff I have a pea thief, or I should say two. My youngest boy and his grandma are the main culprits.

This has made me think for next year and the ability to just pick at random from the garden. The novelty of food from nature never goes away. So now I will have a think of instant eating of food in the garden.
If you have any ideas on foods to grab and eat int he garden please leave a message below.

Its Time to Pick Garlic

When your garlic looks like mine it doesnt mean its ill but more like its getting ready. Ive started lifting some purely for early garlic. I hope we can use the space to store them for a while. If the tops go too quickly then I will pull them all up.

I never thought I’d be producing garlic this good. The small is so much nicer.

There have been some quick crops so far

This is an example of growing something that not everybody is keen on. I think its time to reclaim the land and get some salad crops in.

But there have been a few delays as well

Courgettes (above) and cucumbers (below) are now growing  after the first batch been eaten completely by slugs.

Finally the new fence is up!

It left me with a heafty delay with all other plants healthily growing through summer.

Eight Chilli plants which in any other gardeners garden would probably be flowering or better.


The tomatoes have strengthened up. I started these early indoors back in March, but after bringing them out they got hit with sun burn and delayed them to the point I thought I’d lost them all

Its been a tough time growing plants on time to then have to wait to put them in. Ive lost so many corn plants. Only 4 left now.

So its all go now, at least for the plants anyway.

If you have any great ideas for foods to eat straight in the garden let me know below. Cheers and happy gardening!
