Back Again.

September 22, 2015 admin General Gossip

Been neglecting this site over the summer. Been on holiday  (twice) and have not really had much to say. As it is nearing October it is bulb planting  time, and time to put the garden to bed for the winter. That entails lots of cutting back and cutting down, and moving stuff that has grown […]

Rain, and more rain

July 26, 2015 admin General Gossip

Well we did need it. But not quite this much. Have managed to get out and plant three new Iris plants, but have done not much else. Hopefully I can get out and dead head a bit tomorrow, and go and visit our sadly neglected allotment. As the ground is so wet, it might be a […]

Our garden, I am convinced, believes it is autumn. We  are now having to do the jobs that we normally have to do in September, and the large, big fat spiders have started to enter the house, so it’s close the windows time, and split the plants time. Most annoying, cos we don’t seem to […]

The day after

July 6, 2015 admin General Gossip

Well, our open day has been and gone. Wendy and I are both rather tired, but very pleased.    Although we did not have as many people as last year, and the weather was a bit iffy, all those that came, loved the garden, and some very nice photos were taken, and some very flattering comments […]

Hot again

July 1, 2015 admin General Gossip

Been working in the garden since 7.30, watering and dead heading. Got a few plants to put in to fill a few gaps, and then spend the day ‘topping and tailing’ all the gooseberries and blackcurrants we picked last night.

Jam yesterday, jam today and jam tomorrow.

June 27, 2015 admin General Gossip

Been busy making the jams from our allotment harvest. Now we have to go begging for more jars. Worked out how to repaint the decking and protect it from bird poo. So that’s the job for this afternoon.
