Anyhoo, back to gardening, with a year's worth of experience, learning what works in our garden and what doesn't, its all blooming right now, and I thought it about time do do another role call of what's growing
- Apple - cooking
- Basil - red
- Butternut squash
- Cottage Pink Iced Gem
- Dead bathroom tree
- Parsnips - one variety
- Parsnips - another variety
- Pumpkin - Atlantic Giant
- Pumpkin - dwarf
- Random red tree stolen from work
No tomatoes this year as we seem to have late blight in the soil which just makes the them rot. Late blight also affects the potatoes, but if I harvest them before September, they should be okay.
The parsnips won't be good to eat until next year, and likewise the sweetcorn won't have any cobs until next summer, but its nice to watch it grow.
The apple tree is doing better than last year, the fruit are bigger and more numerous. I'm not sure whether they'll grow big enough to eat, but it still an improvement over the falling foetal buds of last year.
