Garden update

Haven’t done one of these for a while, but things are thriving!
You’ve already seen our gooseberries (Photo July 16th)
I confess to eating our one raspberry as the blackbirds got the others, but today I picked our first tomato!
It is a cherry one, but there are loads coming: we have six plants groaning like this, 2 of which are of the cherry variety:
And our beans:
Thanks to this little chap and his mates
We have a lot of these coming too.
Not to be outdone, we have second flowerings on our Peace (left) and Ancient Mariner (right) rose bushes. There are seven buds to come out on the mariner which will be an absolute picture.

Photos, except gooseberries, taken today, 22nd July 2018.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Beautiful garden! I wish I had a green thumb after my parents. They have an excellent garden flourishing as well. And they don’t mind telling me so either 😀

    • Ours is nothing special and we rely on luck more than anything! This year was a learning curve as the soil here is horrible (clay based), but at least we’ve got something, eventually!!!
