I’ve had a few people ask to see the whole garden in full-swing and not just a tiny glimpse. So here it is. In all its glory, my tiny plot, in full production. Quite tiny I know. But for a small space we’re harvesting a lot of produce. At the moment we can harvest Potatoes, Onions, Garlic, Cabbage, Green Beans, Cucumbers, Gherkins, Spring Onions, Stawberries, Raspberries, Blackcurrants, Blackberries, Lettuce, Courgettes, Herbs, Sunflowers, Gladioli, Cornflowers, Calendula, Sweetpeas, Echinacea, Sunflowers. And looking forward to Peaches, Apples, Grapes, Tomatoes, Sweetcorn, Leeks, Runner Beans, Pumpkins and Squash. Phew! The big gap you can see in the bottom left hand corner is where the Mangetout went over. I plan to put some Cos Lettuce in there in the next few days.
As luck would have it I took a photo of the garden in full swing at almost the exact same time last year. As you can see a few of the perennials were a little smaller than they are this year, including the Lavenders and especially the Raspberries (running along the left hand side of the bottom left bed). The craziness going on the far left hand wall is the doomed Tomatoes (with a Peach tree in there somewhere!).
How’s your garden going this year? Good, bad, better than last year?
