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!

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!

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!

Apple blossomThe garden is bursting with life and in some places it is threatening to take over!

The apple tree is showing off a gorgeous display of blossom.

Just wonderful.

A year in pictures – Day 104

Car choresWe had a busy and productive day in the garden. To be honest it has been left to rack and ruin over the winter so now we are trying it back into a fit state for planting.

We cleared the veg patch, I thinned out the raspberries and dug up some raspberry canes and planted a few more.

The kids mostly played happily and even offered to clean the cars for us! Obviously, the need to be nearly naked when doing this chore is a necessity!

Little GardenerIt is time to get out into the garden.

I have planted up loads of potato bags and some plants from my Dad .

Fortunately I have a little helper to assist with the watering.

2016 Project366 (Day 303)

GardeningWe finally got a bit of time out in the garden this afternoon and spent some time clearing up the veg patch and getting rid of all the dead things that were left at the end of the season. The Mister also gave the apple tree a rather drastic prune. It hasn’t been a great fruiter this year so hopefully it will sort it out!

The Little Mister was keen to help out, especially where secateurs and loppers are in use!
