June in Your Garden!

Wintersong and Dean, lovely pictures, I'm so jealous!

I've got a week off work now, so hope to do a bit more in the garden if the weather is nice, or decorating in the house if it isn't

Happy gardening everyone!

I'll probably jinx myself for saying this, but so far, I've been lucky with the slugs and snails.  Gutted for you guys who have lost plants to the little b******s.

Loving the photos, such pretty gardens you have, mine is mostly given over to function, mainly playing.

I saw baby great tits for the first time ever today .  As I was going in for a closer look, Marmite the cat also spotted them so I had to frighten them away.  The babies are so naive and trusting, bless them.

 My first potato... soooo chuffed!

I haven't been out to the garden for a week to survey the damage or do any repairs - I have been suffering from vertigo.  Don't know what caused it, or how long it will last, but I'm fed up with feeling so helpless .   Hubby has been watering the greenhouse and keeping an eye on things.  He tells me that there are pods on the peas - woo-hoo!  I haven't grown peas before, so chuffed!

I can see some damage to a verigated something or other, I really don't know what it is.  I inherited it from the previous owner - one of the only things we kept.

Loving the pics everyone!

My garden is walled all around and hubby has banned me from banging holes in the walls. I think I'll have to wait until he has a weekend away and go to it with a hammer and chisel!

Sun, sun, sun!  Glorious here today, 5 (!) loads of washing out and dried today.  Sat in the garden sewing today, taking up hubby's work trousers.

Daughter saved the pips from her apple today and insisted on planting them, so I have now got 8 potential apple trees in the GH.

The pumpkin seeds I saved from last years lanterns have just germinated, much to my surprise. We shall wait and see.

Lovely pics David, did you get to see the eclipse?

Figrat, I have never heard of using guttering, brilliant idea.  I got to try that!

Hi all

My second sowing of caulis and cabbages have also failed, so I have tried sowing some in a trough outside. Potatoes have flower buds and dwarf broad beans have flowers!  First sowing of various lettuces have come to a stop, but big enough to eat.

Hubby built a netting cage to go over the strawberries.  Last year I caught the blackbirds eating them, and the only thing I had to hand were hubby's rolled up socks (clean), so I threw them out the bedroom window to scare them off.  hen the cat chased the socks!  Stupid animal

The weather was glorious here on Weds, then rained last night and tonight.

Trying to deal with a hyperactive child and a poorly cat ATM, so I think I have to put one to bed and try to wake the other up a bit.
