In the garden

I've been for a stroll round Pauls veg garden, he's had an operation on his hand, he had to work hard to get his veg garden ready this year as he can't do any work in the garden, he planted a lot of things, mainly pumpkins early, he said they might not survive but he has more in the greenhouse. I've put some carrots in got him and will put some more in this weekend.
I'm not the best at looking after my baskets, but as this one is near Pauls greenhouse it gets watered.
My Lemon tree is now outside,

Pumpkins and courgettes.

Chilli's and tomato plants, theres 7 tom plants in the garden, another 6 or 7 to be planted in the greenhouse, along with the chili and pepper plants as soon as Paul lifts the veg growing in the ground inside the greenhouse.
Lettuce, leeks and tomato plants

The larger onions were planted last year, the ones either side were planted this year.

Red lettuce and cauliflower.


Potato plants


Before Paul went into hospital he prepared this bed, I've put in parsnip seeds and covered in compost, Paul says it will help him find the plants when he can start in the garden.

I've put a few broccoli seedlings in.

Pumpkin plants

Red cabbage.

Some aubergines are going to stay in the greenhouse, some have been planted in a small tunnel.


Red lettuce

Last years onions
Paul cleared a new bed a few months ago and stacked the turf in one corner, what we tried here is to make a dent in the turf heap, added compost and put pumpkin plants in the compost, We will see how this goes.

My old vine

Banana plants growing a screen behind my bench.
