In our garden

By Julia Mumford 16 August 2011

As you probably know March, April and May are the busiest months of the gardening year. We were very nearly beaten by the extrmemely cold winter of 2010/2011. But, at last Spring came in and what a Spring it was, so warm and sunny and we got to plant seeds for broad beans, runner beans, peas, tomatoes, cucumber, courgettes, beetroot, peppers, chilli peppers, brocolli, sweetcorn, cauliflower, curly kale and herbs.

Most seeds germinated and grew well and in fact we supplied our kitchen with some potatoes, peas, beans, kale, courgettes, tomatoes, peppers. Sweetcorn still to be harvested. I have found a new use for tomato food -" Our apple tree" loads of massive cooking apples this year. Not to forget the beautiful floral wheelbarrow, the memory garden plot, the wildflower patch and the greenhouse.
