Hi Guys Had 10 mins of sun this lunchtime so grabbed camera and took some pictures of the garden as it is now.
This is the view from my back door. You can see thar I have 2 greenhouses now.
This is the view from the back gate.
The herbaceous border small I know but I love them.
Turnip seedlings in raised bed no 1.
Radish sparkler in raised bed no 2.
Rocket raised bed no 2.
Spring Onion White Lisbon just emerging raised bed no 2.
Spinach raised bed no 2.
All Year Round Lettuce raised bed no 2. At the moment the beds are covered as you can see but I also put a fleece over the seedlings at night, just in case of frost. The fleece and plastic will come off later and make way for netting.
Courgettes, at the mont they are going into the greenhouse in the day time and bringing them in at night.
Tomato Shirley F1. The same as the courgettes out in the daytime in at night.
Cucumber, Marketmore, Sweet Basil and Antirrhinum, these are standing in a heated propagator. I have removed the lid now but do put fleece over at night. On hot sunny days I also pull the plug but have to remember to put it back at night.
The Sweet Peas I put in 3 weeks ago. These are in a trough and will be growing up the 2 grey obelisks that you can see on other pics.
My freebee water feature, my daughter inherited it with her new house and didn't want it. The flamingo came from a friend who lives in Gloucestershire and is a volunteer at slimbridge Wildfowl Trust.
The border on the other side of the garden does not get as much sun and is damper than the herbaceous border so in here I have Rhubarb, Timperley Early, Astibie's and my pear tree.
Final one an overall view including my dotty dog Molly waiting for me to throw her bone. Don't mind the gaps in the lawn this is molly territory as the stepping stones with pots on show, these are covering up holes that Molly has had great enjoyment in digging when my back has been turned. Naughty Molly.
