Its Growing!!

At last it looks like something is moving in the garden and the veggie patch is looking more how it should!!

As you can see the herbs are in the front, and a strawberry pot which have flowers (Flamenco - unusual pink flowers). The Garlic, Shallots, Beetroot, Sugar Snap Peas, Cabbage and Broccolli are all doing fine. The carrots and spring onions are sticking their noses up but are still quite small.

The lettuces are doing well - already harvested one!! You have to still watch the frosts but its been uncovered from fleece for the last two nights (as long as it doesnt go below 5 degrees you are ok)

The boys even brought me a scarecrow - well you can't grow veggies without one!! I will own up to buying a cat scarer - thought I would give it a go - just dont fancy veggies with cat calling cards!! It seems to be working one cat jumped up on the wall and then jumped back down again - it makes a high pitch noise which you are not supposed to hear but apparently the boys can (anyone under 25 has better hearing) and its like nails on a blackboard!! Just remember to switch it off when you are working out there as the battery doesnt last long (you can get mains converted which I will do now I've seen it working).
Sorry havent blogged for a while - couldnt get logged on. Still now I can hope you can see how I progress throught the summer!!

Great to see that all is going well. It's been a bit chilly here again the last couple of days so fleece is coming in very handy.
