Isn't it wonderful?
Plants really are so resiliant (usually!) and many tolerate oodles of neglect, at least in our garden, anyway...
The lemon tree I transplanted from a pot to the ground last year has a grand total of two lemons! Maybe I should've picked them off to let the tree settle in a bit although it looked like it was doing a fine job of this already, throwing out lots of new leafy growth that had been lost over the previous summer..
|Lemon - Lisbon|
|Garlic, sprouted from last year's homegrown cloves|
|Raspberries - a mixture of thornless and thornies|
In the greenhouse I have been very slack at remembering to water, although the plants didn't seem to mind too much. It doesn't get as much sun as I'd like it to at this time of year, but with huge gum trees in the way there's not a lot I can do..
|Broccoli, swede, beetroot, snow peas, radish, rocket, lettuce and spring onion|
It's lovely to have radishes ready for picking! I have missed these..
After much internet searching I finally found a source to supply me with a madder plant, for which I payed a hefty fee for (plus delivery). Really, really fingers crossed here the little guy makes it!
Hopefully one day it will provide a little root material for some dye 'speriments..
Nothing to do with the garden, but who can resist a fire in this weather?
|Mental note: Wet, cold ovens take soooo much longer to heat up than when they are dry and warm..|
|Perennial leeks - stirfries and soups here we come!|
Although it doesn't seem to be in any hurry to flower, which is just fine by me at the moment!
What's happening in your patch?
