Setting the Vegetables ~Grow your Own~

The Kidney Beans are in

The Kidney Beans are In, and already climbing the canes,

Cabbage 

So too is the Cabbage we have since set the Red Cabbage along side, It is covered with Wire at the moment as the allotment soon has lots of Visiting Pigeons and they just love to eat new cabbage leaves..

sweetcorn

The Sweet-corn is one of our favourites, and we had a bumper crop last year, which we froze and are just coming to the end of eating from storage in the Freezer.. Family and friends always comment on how much sweeter home grown Corn on the Cob tastes..

onions

The Onions and Shallots have come through nicely now, and you can see the two Pea rows coming to the left of them.

I had weeded the two onion rows on the right, Next Job weeding the Shallots 3 rows..Arrgh my back aches!..

Weeding Onions

Great Idea, Go and get the chair out the the shed… Arrgh that’s Better, not so back breaking now.. Smile  

Just thought I would share How My Garden Grows! with Pretty maids All in a ROW!

Winking smile Now Of course I will leave you to guess about the Pretty maid! Smile 

Have a Great Sunday!

    Beautiful garden DW ! Looks so well tended. Very good and I send you praises for your efforts. I sit on a little wagon on wheels so I can roll along. Things aren’t as easy as we age. Mine finally got planted two days ago. The night of the planting and all day yesterday we had pouring rain and driving winds and I thought about my tender young plants being beaten down, but I made a conscious effort to let it go. The next four days were to be cold with rain anyway. I awoke today to sunshine and happy plants!! I swear God was rewarding me for my effort to go with the flow. I thanked him kindly. So all is well.

My back has been aching rather alot.. another symptom of moving forward… and I am now moving with the flow once again.. Thank you.. And living in Gratitude for Life’s blessings is something we should all learn to do… Many thanks again VK… DW.. x

    Wow – that’s a lot of different veg! I only have small beds and pots but my plants are coming along nicely, despite the awful weather we are experiencing this weekend. Home grown produce does taste so much better, I agree!

    Wow, great garden, Sue! See? Your positive thoughts work in the garden too–and by the way, the chair is a smart idea for weeding!
    Here we mulch everything thickly using old hay, straw, leaves, etc..and collaring the plants, the mulch chokes off the weeds. It also feeds the earthworms and keeps moisture–making the garden much more productive! We also use raised beds and more intensive planting. May your garden be blessed, Sue! ~R

    I commend you! It has been many years since I planted a garden (when my children were young) but now it is all I can do to keep up with the weeds in my borders before they choke my flowers. I see above that you speak German? I so love languages and took it for a bit in grade school as a part of my mother’s relatives on her mother’s side were German. I remember my Aunt holding me in her lap and teaching me to count to ten in German. Take care and take care of your back around all that weeding.:)

      Thanks Renee about the concern of my back, I will take very good care.. And yes as we grow that little bit older it becomes a little harder in keeping up with all of those weeds where ever they grow.. And bless you.. No I speak about 4 or five words of German and count to Ten too.. The same with French As we didnt take language when I was at school, I use Google Translate.. a very useful tool.. One I couldnt live without to communicate with my lovely German Friend Gislinde.. 😉 Maybe when I run out of books to read and flowers to plant, Maybe then I should take up learning a different language.. We English are Very Lazy expecting everyone else to learn our Language.. Hugs to you Renee.. x

      Thank you Jo, well the Cost! has gone up, the rent of the allotment for a start has more than doubled since we took it on.. and the costs of seeds are getting more and more. but we try to save alot of our own seeds to set.. and dry our beans and peas out for setting etc… But it is still cheaper than Supermarket rates and you know what hasnt been sprayed on it all.. Good Organic Veggies.. 🙂
