Weekend away…photos to be added

Posted on Updated on

It was our anniversary last weekend.

One year has flown by and the sweet peas generation 2 have bloomed!

This year we took ourselves to Devon.
And spent the weekend in this bell tent.

Words cannot describe how lovely this place is!

These lovely ladies supplied us with fresh eggs. I might have fallen in love (just a bit) with chickens now!! And we did actually leave the farm.

We went to…. Overbeck’s We had a great 6 mile coastal walk to the house (3 miles each way) and the garden was stunning! One of my favourites!..

I have a list of plants I want which is always a good sign! The house told a quirky story and was very much like a mini natural history museum. We also went to Saltram. Again lovely gardens, but we had a great cup of tea and cake here!

I was very inspired by the Orangarie. And the bees thought the same!!

And we even spotted the Devon chilli farm! And had a little stop off and treated ourselves to a plant! WordPress for android is driving me crackers so check out  bloomorbustblog for some photos. I will try persist with WordPress.

June time!

My post from last week failed. So this week is a double update.

The plot has been thundering along during these last few weeks.

The plot

And with the addition of some stone paths (at last!….a use for my mountain of stones!) it’s looking a bit smarter.

The chillies and greenhouse friends are all doing ok. But I might need to take them home to get them flowering.

I have got cucumbers appearing. And still going strong! This is my first year growing these so I am really chuffed!

We have had lots of strawberries already. And we have lots of plants dotted around the plot now. Mainly from runners. My original plants will be 4 next year, so this will be the last year and the runners from this year will take over. Although I might keep my oldies a bit longer. Feel sad to say goodbye!!

The raspberry bushes are even growing fruit! I really didn’t expect this as it is the first year. So they seem to be approving! And my 3 replacement raspberries appear… To be ok… But slow progress.

The sweet peas are doing well… And we have had our first blooms.

Otherwise:
Onions
Garlic
Bbeans
Spinach
Courgette
Potatoes
Tomatoes
Are all doing ok.

My blog is rather glitch ridden at the moment. Hopefully my next post will be a bit easier!
