Lovely garden Gilly. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for each stage when downloading photos.

Is that your front garden Chris? Looks big, do you walk across the lawn when you come in? Looks as if it's in the countryside.

The average temperature in Sicily in Jan and Feb is 13° and July and Aug is 29°, so perhaps they grow earlier in the year.

Anybody watching The Big Allotment Challenge

I love asparagus and buy local here in France when it's in season (but it's more expensive) and from South America otherwise. They have to make a living there too and they can provide it out of season. I had my own bed for 18 years though, until bindweed took over.

I enjoy the Allotment Challenge as entertainment, not a serious gardening programme, which it isn't. But I think they could have made it so and made 2 programmes out of it, one being the gardening bit in more depth.

What is it?

Could be a sunflower.

I hate snakes, ever since a viper bit my son when he was 11 and he nearly died.

Sowed a lot of seeds in veggie garden, weeded, sorted greenhouse.

That was perhaps a daft question! I should have looked at david's posts before, lots of lovely photos from him of his garden in Reno, Nevada, a lot of them I'd already seen. An experienced gardener.

david spikes, you have a beautiful garden. Have you owned it a long time?

I love tiarella, Fairygirl. So frothy and delicate.

That's if you meant Brumbull. But it may be that a troll took his identity.

I'm supposed to be in the veggie garden, but I got rained on. Prepared ground for seed sowing, more peas, beetroot, carrots, fennel, spinach. Come in for a mac and the loo.
