Sat here feeling terribly sorry for myself because I had really hoped the garden would be a little further along by now. The herb garden doesn't exist, the pond isn't finished, the vegetable plot.... well that's a huge mound of earth right now that will have to wait until the green houses are done and they'll not be done until my partner is bored of playing in his shed.
So instead I thought I would list all the vegetables I have gotten growing so far. Think on the positive side type of thing.
"Basil bush" pot in the kitchen (no idea how it differs to normal basil but it is almost big enough to start harvesting)
Garlic (under the washing line)
Onion (along the path - the only bit of land free at the time! Next year I'll plant something there that can withstand size 13 feet a little better)
4 x cherry bomb chillis
3 x purple riots (tiny little plants that seem to show no interest in growing now they've four leafs each)
1 x bullhorn
2 x unknown chilli that had their labels plucked and dropped by unknown forces
1 x scotch bonnet
3 x pepperoncini
6 x chilly willy (surprisingly the only chillies that I've not struggled to germinate - wonder what that says about me!)
2 x jalapeno (growing the best of all the chillis so far and are already on their third pot up)
2 x Dave Tomatoes (planting some more this weekend now the world is warming up)
5 x Roma Tomatoes
My salad trays are full of delicato, rocket and lollo rossa, Well not exactly full but life is happening!
In a corner of the greenhouse I've pots full of oregano, thyme, lemon corriandar, and sage seeds that I'm hoping will germinate to grow ready for when we make a start on the herb garden. Outside I've rosemary (never seen it flower before!) and mint (safely in a tub though its current size does make you wonder how it spreads so wildly), and the rhubarb I found which is having a rest year ready to move this autumn.
I've the apple tree, crab apple tree, and pear tree now shedding blossom across the grass...
And an almighty to do list!
