Look at that pole bend!

Well, what can I say?
Hubby knows his onions, and of the set of 50 we planted, we got a yield of about 90% and something like 10kg of produce.
They were harvested yesterday and now need them to dry out.
Are we pleased? You bet we are!!
We will be doing our veg in pots next year so the onion patch is going to be allowed to grow over.
Once the beans, tomatoes and potatoes have finished, we shall be having a little shifty around out back, and the Buddleia bush will be moved to where the potatoes are now.

It looks a bit unglamorous at the moment as it’s going over now, but we shall be wanting to use the compost it’s sitting in, so it looks like it’s pretty good stuff by the way the bush has grown!

With the heat, the weeds have thrived in the lawn, and I have never seen so many thistles other than in fields and hedgerows!
We’ve treated it today so Maggie still has to stay out, but all being well in three days Hubby can cut the grass. We won’t be moving anything yet though obviously.

Had our second lot of beans today and two more tomatoes which didn’t make it to the kitchen, let alone a salad!


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.

    Eating straight off the vine/plant! Isn’t that the usual result of growing your own? How much actually makes it to the table? 🙂

  2. What a great harvest – and think of the grocery savings (something tells me you have that one figured out).
