Too busy harvesting.....

Another apology. Life just seems to get busier and busier. Not only am i busy mentally trying to deal with my change in size (i gained the 3 stone that i need to, to reach a healthy weight) and the fact that i now have some fat on my body (which i'm not overjoyed about), but physically my body is having to cope with digesting all this food its not used to. That alone leaves me tired but i am also now working part time at a fruit farm (packing fruit, tidying the plants and bushes, pruning, hulling berries for jam making etc). Then of course there's our own garden to look after as well, with everything growing like mad. So little energy or time for blogging really.

So a couple of slide shows:


July (mainly flowers)

the only other things i have from the growing side of things recently are a couple of videos but they seem to be the wrong file type to both edit and be able to upload and share. But i took them the wrong way round on my camera anyway, so you'd be looking at it on your side. I'll try and remember to take some more photos for a slide show soon.

Harvests so far: Brocolli, Cauliflower, Runner Beans, Dwarf Beans, sugar snap peas, Strawberries, Cucumber, Blueberries, Lettuces and Rocket, Spinach.

Soon to be ready: beetroot & chard, onions, carrots, courgettes

Failures: Tomatoes - blight contaminated soil in the greenhouse, now disinfected and replanted. fingers crossed.
Fennel - bolted. I give up with this.

and now its time for bed, as i am exhausted and have to get up for work in the morning.
