Small Potatoes

LOL Geoff. I didn't realize you had to fertilize potatoes as well! Tut, wish you could get foods stamps for plants!

James, this will be my first attempt to grow potatoes in time for Christmas, so glad you asked, or mine would have just had sunshine (when applicable) and water as well, producing many marbles I suspect.


The Edible Garden

Ooh, I'll look out for that 'The Edible Garden'. I have some vouchers for Amazon which I hadn't a clue what to use on, so will see if it's on there.

Yes, Never grown them before anyway, so chance of survival could well have been slim anyway.

Don't suppose you're growing any grapes are you David? Cuttings welcome.

I know Lokelani. What bugs me more is if they'd just thrown it away, as it really did look in a sorry state. I'm hoping someone bought it and is giving it some TLC.

Sentimental lot when we come to out plants aren't we.


July in the garden!!

I love that Orange Art Gary. So pretty. Shame about your first strawberry tasting. What variety Strawberry is it. Looks nice and big.

Tomatoe plants with no flowers !

I never got that email Gary, but maybe because I've only just registered.

Wilko's were having a sale a couple of weeks ago by me, and I stocked up on pots. 75% off marked price. They had a rather sad looking grape vine for £2, which I was tempted, but decided against, but changed my mind the day after and went back. But it had gone.

LOL, David Stop it!!! Too tempting, But then again, like Gary said, still expensive, even for half price.Well, for me anyway.

This will be my first time attempting to propegate the runners this year, so hopefully, I'll have new plants for next year, although Jess did sow 30 odd strawberry seeds a couple of weeks ago, which have all germinated indoors!! Trying to explain to a 3 year old about sowing times, and wrong times of year to do it went totally over her head. I'm not sure what will happen with them!

Can't have too much fun David. That would mean digging into my holiday money, and that just wouldn't do!

I wish you hadn't said that about the strawberry plants Gary. My biggest downfall. Now, where's my nearest Homebase!!

Up the A5, Chester Road, Aldridge. 15 mins from me. I love a bargain. Got 12 seed potatoes from our local hardware/odds and sods shop today for 50p.
