bank holiday weekend


i built this and did bits of garden,I did try to just laze about being a holiday,but there was nothing on tv and the garden was calling me,
it took ages to fill it,and there is lettice,broccali and cabbage in it

another pic to show my gooseberry at the front and im going to put my path down the side and then another fruit plant

and my potatoes which are getting bigger every day

some of the 24 tomatoes im growing(might have gone a bit mad there)

my miss christine looking lovely just like me

and this which i have not a clue what it is,it tasts like celery and it was tiny last year,i dont know what happened to that,think its a triffid

Well done Ladybug, it all looks very healthy especially the triffid?, no help here at all either, hope you like toms....

Hi Ladybug - I think the plant may be Lovage - perhaps you'd like to Google it and check.

Looks like you've been very busy planting - especially the tomatoes. My OH has a huge number of tomato plants - far too many for us - and they all need setting out. He likes to grow several varieties but always sows too many.

I hope all of your plants grow well. Happy Gardening.

it is lovage and now to figure out what to do with it

Treat it as a herb Lbug, tastes like celery leaves with a hint of lemon. Chop the leaves and toss into a salad or an egg omelette, at least you`ll have plenty of tomatoes to go with
