@Four Weeks

So much going on and so little time to do things!   I have added a whole load of extra things this week, so comments are with the photos.  It has been sun sun sun, hot hot hot all week, which has meant lots of watering although only on the small things.  Everything else has to take their chance, including the new grass seed in the front garden which is a bit of a pity.  I have watered it a couple of times, but it will come up eventually and if it doesn’t then a top up on Autumn will do the job I am sure.


Beans – only planted them a couple of days ago so no show as yet: 



Rhubarb – needs picking, we have made some pies from it already:


Tayberry – this is a new one this week.  One of the fruit bushes that we got reduced from Woolworths and it seems to have taken and has new growth on it:


Wild Strawberries – some nice little flowers and some small green strawberries starting to show.  That and the two plants are now multiplying like it is going out of business:


Blackcurrents – this is the third or fourth year (I forget) and this year the bush never got pruned and so it is really looked after itself.  Mind you, a good growth of flowers appearing:


Sunflowers – the ones that started it all.  These are no four weeks old and no more slug problems after using pellets.  They are well on their way outside while a couple more are just starting to show inside (to replace the slug eaten ones) as well as two planted directly outside showing now too:



Potatoes – I managed to get a couple more off freecycle, so now we have four seed potatoes in the pot.  The existing ones the growth was about an inch above the soil, so I have now topped it up with more soil.  The next time I have to do this, it will be at the top:


Grass – don’t be fooled by the photo, it is actually quite patchy and the hot sunny weather has not helped at all.  Mind you, it does look like it is meant to be there and from a distance is a nice carpet of green. It is meant to rain tomorrow:


Tomatoes: now repotted and outside:


Chillies – now repotted outside.  The stones are to keep them upright:


Clematis is growing very well, about an inch or more per day.  It will soon be up to the wire and off along the fence:


Amaranthus – I really need to read up on what to do with these:


Basil – growing nicely and time to repot them I think:


Cress – more luck this second time and half of it eaten, yum:


Mini Sunflowers – ready to plant outside:


Sweetpeas – every single seed seems to have done something which is fantastic:


Salad – still growing but very slowly, and little bits of it dieing too, not doing too well.  I think we will put some seed outside at sometime:
