A few weeks ago

So far this week I’ve only been to the plot once but it was well worthwhile.  Unlike the other days Tuesday was dry and sunny so I lifted more onions and potatoes, picked plenty of beans and some blackberries and raspberries along with a couple of cucumbers, a sweet corn cob, the first few tomatoes and the last rhubarb stems.  I was going to cut some sunflowers but they were buzzing with bees so left them for another day.

 

Last Sunday I was given three pelargoniums, one each pink/white, red and white in small pots and looking rather sorry for themselves.

 

I removed several dead leaves and re-potted them. They’re now looking much better, and all three are flowering.

 

 

A few weeks ago the two tomatoes Tiny Tim on the windowsill had lots of flowers but I neglected to water them as often as I should have done so most died and dropped off rather than form fruit.  I’m annoyed with myself about this as I had high hopes for these this year.  As it is there are still a few flowers and one tiny fruit is now forming.

Have a good weekend!

    A bountiful harvest! The geraniums look as though they’ve found a good home.

    It sounds as though you’re getting plenty of variety in your harvests. I love geraniums, especially red ones, I always grow them in tall pots at each side of my back door. Such a shame about your Tiny Tims, fingers crossed that they go on to produce some fruit for you.

      Jo surprisingly so given that I always consider that I don’t grow that much. Good for you, they’re lovely looking plants. Thanks, it was my own silly fault. xx

  3. It sounds a very good harvest and the colour of those blooms is just lovely 🙂

    All the best Jan

  4. I am sure your new plants will thrive now!
