New extended Veg Plot


By Crissue

New extended Veg Plot

OH has worked really hard on the extended Veg Garden...all ready now, save the tomatoes and pumkins still going...

Lawn removed, and the Patio extended, not shown here...and the Turfs used as a moving continuing path around the new area...
The big Arch has now gone, many Shrubs have been replanted elsewhere in the Garden, and the rampant Honeysuckle is no more...
Looking forward to lots more for the Kitchen next year...

Thanks, big disappointment this year with all the Rain...:o(

I have enough at the lower end for all my Flowering plants, + the Pond, which has it's own resident Frog now, and baby Fish, courtesy of the new Lily we bought, which had eggs hidden in it, about 20 lol...all thriving...

Looking forward to the extra Veg next year....

How nice to get fish, lovely surprise. I know what you mean about the weather, it has been awful, hopefully better next summer. Veggies will be scrumptious. :O)

He's done a great job Crissue - I'm sure you will be feasting well next year :)
It's nice to get something free.....especially 20 baby fish :))

Looking good, our veg bed came good in the end, it's been a learning year of what grows best mainly root veg did really well with both sorts of beans, onions and carrots also did really well.00))

Ha Ha....the Fish were a surprise, it happened once before with an indoor Tank plant, and a couple of baby Fish appeared...totally different to what we had in the Tank lol...

French Beans went well, Peppers Chilli/Bell.....Carrots too....Tomatoes continually split, and went black on the bottom...Strawberries, what we got, were lovely + I made Microwave Jam....Thankyou to who put the Recipe up...but we had to practically stand guard on the fruit and leaves...everything wanted to eat them lol...

Potatoes were scrumptious....and we have Pumpkin still coming....Hoping for better next year....

Hi Terra, and thankyou...Could do without the baby Fish really, but we lost one of our Big ones, don't know why, so I suppose they're company for Him....he must look like a Whale to the tiddlers...and yes it's great to have the Frog too...

Very pleased with the extended Veg area...and OH has planted Savoys for next year...+ he moved our Thornless Blackberry, and ran it on post an wires, a bit like a vine...and it's happy...Well it should be, we've had enough rain lol....

I wonder if you'll get more frogs. I like seeing them.

Good luck with your veg. for next year. The extra space will be useful :o)

Just an update, Savoy Cabbages are in, and our Thornless Blackberry is in place, this side of the grass path, on post/training wires, and no sign of distress....
