Posted: Sat Jul 15, 2017 12:38 am Post subject: Let's See Your Gardens!
Anything Goes! Fruit, Vegetables, Flowers, or even just a nice lawn if you have it!
If you took the time to grow it, and take care of it, let us see it!
Unfortunately our growing season is very limited. I don't plant till after the 15th of May as I worry about the frost, but my leaf lettuce was finally ready for a meal tonight. It should start growing a lot bigger very soon.
Four different varieties between the red flags. In another week or so I'll probably have to remove every other plant as they grow larger, but until then I will let them grow and eat them
Looks kinda fancy in a bowl Tasted even better after a little dressing and bacon bits thrown on top
The front is out of the question - far too public.
The back would be feasible but there are practical problems. The ground is sloping so the track would have to be raised. Then there would be the problem of the back door and the garden gate, so there would have to be hinged sections. _________________ Have Fun

Back garden, just after a bit of snow - we don't get much snow in south east England these days. I've got one big old apple tree, probably planted soon after the house was built in 1935, and three young pear trees.
Front garden when my Morello cherry tree was in flower. Had a reasonable crop of cherries this year, a few weeks earlier than usual.
