Summer time and the livin’ is easy – I wish that were true. Summer time has been a bit mad if I am honest. This morning we had to say goodbye to one of our smallest pets poor, little Porsche the gerbil who at the ripe old age of two died – sad faces. He is now buried in the garden with his Momma.
On to happier news, as a lot of my news is glum I am afraid. My garden is loving this warm damp, weather and everything is growing a pace.
So what is growing in the Summer Vegetable Garden ?
Remember the baby carrots from the “Great Carrot Experiment” well look what I uncovered and quickly recovered today.
I may actually be pulling up my own carrots soon I am quite excited about that – my next adventure is with cauliflowers which I shall start tomorrow as I have never grown them either.
The other things I am very excited about are my tomatoes they are growing like beanstalks and covered in tomatoes.
These little beauties are Tigerella and I can see their stripes, they are perfect little specimens too I am excited about harvesting them.
We also have Gardener’s delight which are cherry tomatoes and the plant is covered in them.
The cucumbers are flowering in the Summer Vegetable garden and I’m wondering which variety I have as I planted two types – time will tell 🙂
And last but not least on this little update, look what is growing on my pepper plants, I think we have chilli peppers people.
I feel a slow cooker chilli will feature in it’s future. Unless it turns out to be a sweet pepper then a nice salad 🙂
