My great success this year has been my Winter 'greens'. I have lots of Cavolo Nero, lots of Perpetual Spinach, and lots of Swiss Chard.
I also have more than enough Peppers, Aubergines, and Courgettes; plus a reasonable supply of Carrots.
The large mess of Tomato plants (in the top photo) is finally offering us some fruit, and they are looking very good. The plants, bought by Lady Magnon, are grafted, and were 'guaranteed' to be disease resistant. I have had to prop them us, as the weight of all the fruit on them is causing them to topple.
Elsewhere there are Pumpkins, Squashes, etc, and a few self sown Jerusalem Fartichokes are dotted around. Other than my failure to produce either Beans or early Tomatoes, things have eventually turned out OK.
You've done well to keep your spinach going in the extreme heat. Our raspberry canes got totally ripped to pieces this week in the wind.ReplyDelete
I've been watering every morning, and luckily we've now had some rain. It's a very healthy crop.Delete
It looks very neat and orderly, which pleases my eye.ReplyDelete
I'm the only really scruffy thing around here.Delete
All looks very green and clean. Abundant greens for sure. You have a very healthy dietReplyDelete
We're very keen on our greens; especially in the Greek 'Horta' fashion.Delete
Winter greens look great. I don't have enough space for everything I want to grow in the summer plus growing on winter veg, but I'm going to have a big re-design this autumn to make mine a more year-round plot, although high rain levels here mean it will never look as good as yours!ReplyDelete
I always think of my winter veg's as the most important ones; other than Toms of course. Fresh leafy veg's are almost impossible to buy here in winter.Delete
Looks like you will have more than enough to see you through winter. Why would they be impossible to buy there, does everyone grow their own? Looks like you are self sufficient in veggies year round except for Tom's.ReplyDelete
I've never seen Cavolo Nero grown or sold here, and some of the Spinach I've seen looks limp and uninviting. Much better to have it growing at the end of the garden.Delete
Agree much better to have it growing just surprised you cannot buy it.Delete
Haddocks looks really good. Glad to read that you got some nice tomatoes despite your early problems.ReplyDelete
The Toms are just beginning to ripen, and there will be quite a few. I may even be able to do some more conserves.Delete
That is a very neat veggie garden. Looks like a table set in Buckingham Palace......lined up with a ruler and string.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear your tommi atoes decided to do as they were told....and bore decent fruit for you
I do like Haddock's to be neat-n-tidy. It helps with weeding, picking, and personal pleasure.Delete
As everyone has said, you are a very neat gardener ... I like neatness with some rambling and hanging trees ! It feels as if you’ve done really well this year, crop wise ? XXXXReplyDelete
I've certainly had my failures, but like all gardeners, I continue to learn.Delete
I am curious as to why you call your garden area "Haddocks" ...ReplyDelete
And, "Fartichokes" ... LOL Seriously ... do artichokes give you gas?
I'm not really prepared to say why it's called Haddock's, but it has always been thus! I imagine you have not had the pleasure of Jerusalem Artichokes, but let me assure you that they are always eaten with the windows open.Delete
And somebody has been busy with the hoe too!ReplyDelete
Now that it is in four separate sections it is so much easier to keep weed free. Hoeing down one row takes a matter of seconds, and I do just one or two rows at a time.Delete
You have produce for the winter. I do love Swiss chard. And everything else. I can almost smell the ground.ReplyDelete
With our store cupboard filled, plenty in the freezer, and a good supply of green vegs in the garden, we are already ready to face winter.Delete
