Haddock's itself contains a huge array of fruit and vegs. Amongst the fruit trees are Figs, Apples, Plums, Peaches, and Cherries.
In the vegetable growing beds there are Courgettes, Tomatoes, Peppers, Aubergines, Peas, Broad Beans, Spinach, Maize, and Beetroot. Later there will be Swiss Chard, Cavolo Nero, and PSB.
There are also Artichokes; both Globe and Jerusalem,
and a couple of rows of Red Onions.
Elsewhere there are Grapes, more Apples, Pears, more Peaches, more Figs, and even Quinces.
It looks like our 2019 harvest will be good. It'll make-up for the past two years when things were a tad hit-n-miss.
Looking good. Is that shell on the paths?ReplyDelete
No, it's just crushed stone. It needs re-doing.Delete
Everything is growing and looks wonderful. One year I grew artichokes. I was so happyReplyDelete
I used to have several Artichoke plants, but they died. This is the first crop from some replacements, I'll give them another week before harvesting. I love them; Lady M doesn't.Delete
It all looks good at Haddock's and well in advance of growth here in Coventry.My runner and dwarf beans are doing ok but we are still having some cold nights. I don't anticipate my courgettes anytime soon. My potatoes look to be growing well.Herbs are a disaster so far. I have been given some cucumber plants so shall give them a go. Thank you for the update it has given me hope! I love the growing season am I too late to start some PSB?ReplyDelete
Not at all, in fact now is the time to sow if, like me, you want it in Spring. It's a great time of year; lovely to watch everything develop.Delete
Haddocks looks great. Are you growing potatoes this year Cro?ReplyDelete
No, I never bother. Not only do I not have the space, but they're also so cheap to buy!Delete
So are onions. We just love our own new potatoes.Delete
A few years back I grew 'new potatoes' for Christmas. In September I planted a few seed potatoes in a tub of compost, and they were perfect justin time for the big day!Delete
It is all looking very fine......like our next door neighbour's plot! I have just planted my runner beans from their pots and they are about 1 to 2 feet tall. 5 tomato plants, presently in pots but will be put out when a bit bigger and that's my lot ! Remind me why it is called Haddocks please. ( ps Neil next door has a huge artichoke plant. )ReplyDelete
I think I'd better keep quiet about the name! I love Artichokes, they're time-consuming to prepare, but delicious.Delete
Maybe because I am reading this on my phone, the colours in the garden look so vivid.ReplyDelete
They were taken in yesterday's bright sunshine. Today is grey and damp.Delete
Here we struggle - last year too hot and dry, this year still too cold.ReplyDelete
It's always a lottery, but this year I think we've won.Delete
I look forward to the annual Quince Festival and the ritualistic composting to ensure a fine harvest for next year.ReplyDelete
Everything is flourishing because of last year's Quince and Grape flavoured compost.Delete
I look forward to the homage to the courgette.ReplyDelete
It will arrive very soon.Delete
What a variety! It all looks like a great growing and preserving season.ReplyDelete
Thank goodness. I haven't found a single thing yet, that isn't doing well (other than my Strawberries).Delete
Haddocks looks wonderful, Cro. Here’s hoping good weather will bring you lots of beautiful veggies. I don’t grow as much as you, but enough for the two of us and some left over to give away to family and friends.ReplyDelete
Even with my small plot, I usually manage to grow too much. I do plenty of bottling, but stuff in the freezer often doesn't get eaten in time.Delete
Those artichokes look lovely, something we have never grown.ReplyDelete
Once they 'take', they are self-reliant. I love them; I don't even dislike preparing them.Delete
Is it my imagination or did I just comment on a post entitled "What would you do?" and it disappeared when I pressed 'send'?ReplyDelete
As for Haddock's it's looking good.
Sorry Graham. I had my two worst trolls leaving their idiotic comments, and, infrustration, I deleted it.Delete
It is lovely, and I am so pleased to have a green grocer just up the road.ReplyDelete
Joanne. Just a few seconds ago, I was drying my hands (!) and thinking of you. Your work receives much admiration.Delete
