Day 148

Dad's garden centreWe have quite a big garden and it is a constant battle to keep it looking ok. In contrast my Dad has the most immaculate garden. He spends a lot of money and hundreds of hours weeding and tidying. He also is growing a lot of plants ready to pot up, so I went to visit to see what I could scrounge for my tubs and pots!

Day 126

PotatoesIt has been such a beautiful day today and we have spent quite a bit of time in the garden over the last couple of days. The Mister has been working very hard indeed.

Our potatoes are growing very nicely and we are prepping the veg patch for planting. I love growing our own food.

Day 101

Victoria Plum

Even the Victoria Plum tree is blossoming. I am hoping for more fruit this year and fewer caterpillars!

Day 99

PrimrosesThe garden might be really untidy and full of weeds but it is also springing into life. Gorgeous primroses splash glorious colours in all the corners of the garden, reminding us that better weather is to come (I hope±)

A year in pictures – Day 259

DenIt has been a busy day and the kids have been quite trying. I am guessing it is because they are really tired.

The Little Miss was a reluctant participant at her music lesson today and The Little Mister refused to stay. He said there were too many girls there!

This afternoon I went and did some food shopping and the kids stayed with The Mister. I love this picture he took of them, happy as anything and playing in the den they made.

Fruitfulness

The garden is really fruitful at the moment.

We have loads of courgettes and raspberries growing and the beans are just starting to come.

I love having a garden then helps to feed us!

TomatoesMy tomatoes are doing well in the greenhouse this year.

We also have three cucumber plants which seem to be growing like triffids!

A year in pictures – Day 176

Potato treasuresWe had a busy afternoon in the garden and The Mister and the kids emptied out all the bags of potatoes.

We did pretty well and managed to get a trug about 2/3 full.

The children really enjoy digging through the soil to see what treasures they can find!

Greenhouse

The greenhouse is starting to burst into life and The Mister has build this frame to support the tomatoes… I think it should be strong enough to support the weight this year!

A year in pictures – Day 144

Lush garden

Our garden is blossoming. The problem is that the things that are growing the best are usually the weeds.

This picture looks like we have been tending the garden beautifully. Sadly, all the beautiful plants in the foreground are weeds!
