It’s been a while again hasn’t it? Hmm. Must try better next year. Hmm. Interesting idea for a new year resolution…

Anyway, hope you all had a lovely christmas and it was full of goodness. Best wishes for the new year too. Here’s an idea for next year’s tree; have any chillis still drying? Put a bit of glitter on them and plonk them on a branch. Nice!

New Post

It’s a new post! Hello! You see, I’ve not forgotten about you. The thing is, is that I’ve not been doing much in the way of gardening; the front of the flat is ticking over, sure, but it’s not been particularly productive. I’ve had lots of lettuce and basil, but I only managed to harvest one courgette and the beetroot was a disaster. Also all I seem to be doing these days is wedding planning. Obviously, I’ll keep you updated, but I don’t want to bore you with tears with everything that’s going on. Besides, I’ll only give everything away and Dave will only end up seeing pictures of me in my wedding dress. Also, as some of you know, I’ve also been occupied with my photo project which is harder than it looks!

I do have plans for the flat and springtime should be productive. I’ll keep you posted.

I finally caught an episode of the new series of Gardeners’ World. Toby Buckland seems pretty good I thought. He reminded me of Geoff Hamilton a little. What do you guys think? I really wish the producers would stop using Sarah Raven though. She manages to turn what could be fascinating reports into dull pieces of beige.

The joy of seeds

It’s fantastic to see where random plants pop up. This marigold for example, I don’t think I’ve ever planted a marigold outside the flat, but here it is in the ivy next to the step.

And as for this one found in a hanging basket that hasn’t been touch in well over a year…



Proper food soon! Joy! I love courgette flowers, so pretty and tasty. The flowers on this particular plant are all double, is that usual? I’ve certanily never seen it before.

Is that all there is?

In one of the pots outside that flat, are three fine looking beetroot. Unfortunatly upon closer inspection, they’re not very good at all. Also, they’re covered in little aphi/bug things. Anyone know what they are and why has the beetroot not gorn any bulbs? They’ve got plenty of space to grow and I can’t understan why they’ve done this. Or do they simply need to grow a bit more?
