The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
If you’ve had enough of photos of weird green photos of plants and stuff. Look away now!
Every now and again when you grow things you find there’s times when the garden is overwhelming with excitement and promise.
And every now and again as a gardener you can’t help but get excited.
Then as a blogger who writes about their garden it’s impossible to avoid getting over excited on the page!
Look, look!!!! Red flowers from climbing beans! (Don’t ask me what kind, I don’t remember stuff like that!)
These red flowers are totally different! They are from asparagus peas a really weird plant that crawls along the ground and produces pods with wings! How cool is that!
Now this little beauty is a gherkin. I’m growing them instead of cucumbers this year cos cucumbers aren’t that successful! At the moment it’s about 2.5cm long and it has a gazillion siblings waiting to grow too.
Now this cute plant is a nasturtium. The flowers will be edible. This one has variegated leaves, all exciting and striped!
The amazing blackcurrant plant, has been very busy. Under her leaves loads of berries have been secretly ripening. Now there are tonnes and they will need picking!
Now this baby is so exciting I can’t contain my enthusiasm. It’s a perennial walking onion! This weird flowery bit at the top of the stalk flops down to the ground. Then it will re grow. It should be able to continue right through the year.
And finally the piece de resistance the one plum tree has good news…. Triplets!
We may have to consider changing her name!
So that’s the photos for now. Weird and wonderful!
