Gardening trials and tribulations

25th May 2014 - Spinach and Strawberries.

The weather has brought on all the plants raised from seed in the greenhouse very quickly and I have been able to plant many items out into the raised beds.

The first fruit and veg to harvest are the spinach and the strawberries from the greenhouse and Alana was only too happy to help collect the spinach and eat one of the first few strawberries.

It'll still be a few weeks before we are picking bowels of strawberries, but we have lots and lots of fruits just waiting to turn red.

My tomatoes, cucumber, runner beans,  sweetcorn,  peas and raspberries are all planted, and indeed I have fruits on the raspberries and flowers on the runner beans.

I must get my sweet peas and dwarf French beans plants planted (they are hardening off).

Other seeds that are coming along nicely are:-

  • Sunflowers
  • Cauliflowers
  • 2nd batch of sweetcorn,
  • Tarragon
  • more tomatoes (different variety) (the ones I have planted came from my father-in-law David (thanks).
