Bank Holiday Weekend


Husbands Melon is coming along nicely.
I spent hours in the garden yesterday just planting a few things, repotting & watering, and taking photos..
My back feels a little sore this morning, however I am so glad that I did it all yesterday as the rain has arrived, like most bank holiday monday’s :-(
I planted out my Sweetcorn and Courgettes as they where getting far too big in the root trainers and pots in the greenhouse.
I have 3 Goji Berry plants, a present from my mother in law. I have positioned those against the fence.
Pricked out the Celery and put them into individual pots.
My friend came back from her cruise and was amazed at the Begonias, they had all sprouted with 4 leaves – in 1 week. I gave her 3 tomato plants and a lettuce to take home, think i might have got her hooked on growing your own, she said that they had planted some peppers & a cucumber.

Flowers….Marigolds, Lobelia and Daisies, all grown from seed. I planted these in a raised border on the drive. We are just waiting for the builder to come and concrete the drive, so hopefully it will look nice come the summer now i have planted some flowers.

Looked at all your pics and they are very impressive. You and Mr. Melon will be eating well this summer. I have just finished putting out all of my summer vegies, with the eggplants being last. My spring stuff is still going strong. Isn't growing your own great?!
