Trapiantato un mirtillo

Messa spiraea in vaso grande – sperém…

Spostata la Dicentra – ora e’ nel vaso blu grande – provare a propagare l’anno prossimo





25 September


What happened to my gardening journal? As I suspected… have been doing enough work in the garden, and then was too tired to write about it. Not true.

I just cannot keep a proper journal, and this is also true for plant labels: wether I use them or not I always end up not knowing what is what…

So much happened in the garden:

new population:

July 2013: the chickens arrive..


less griselinia: before, during and after….

Much more light, and it had become useless as a windbreak, thanks Meitheal! (the pictures were taken in July – we had the best summer ever!)

After three meagre summers – vegetable wise – things are good!

Beetroot, broad beans and lettuces in bed 4

22nd April

Cloudy and drizzly – then sunny from around 1 pm!

Today’s sowings

Cerinthe – in modules

Mangetout – Carouby de Maussane – very old seeds – the expiry date was about 6 years ago – some in modules, some in tunnel border, some outside

Dwarf French beans “the prince” – modules

Climbing french beans “Eva” – modules

Zucchine: Romanesco, zucchini (???) , soleil

Pattypan squash

Melon Midget

Beetroot Chioggia : one module tray and one row in tunnel border

Radishes – 2 rows between strawberry plants

Planted the strawberries from last years runners – some in soil some in pots.

Have to fix south side of PT – last week storm must have lifted the whole thing!

Transplanted tomato seedlings – the chillies did not germinate at all – may try another sowing now that it is warmer.

The tulips look amazing.
