Garden shots

A few shots from the veg plot.

Finally the PSB is making an appearance, there is also some white sprouting broccoli too but all you can see are the leaves. I do believe they are later than their purple cousins so I haven't given up all hope.

A surprise cauliflower. Not a complete surprise you understand I did actually plant them. The surprise came from the speed in which the head came. It wasnt there several days ago. Still it will make a nice addition to Sunday lunch this coming weekend. Perhaps the other four bedfellows will produce something too. 

A snail on last years teasel. It is a snail I promise. Long time readers know my lack of photography skills. I need to cut the teasel down along with lots of other stuff in the garden. I'm such a fair weather gardener. 

Finally Rocky hound being introduced to the cows in the field behind my house 

He is such a wimpy little doggy, 

Are you all well, I do hope so xx

  1. Glad you are harvesting cauli's and broccoli as I've not had much luck with either and haven't tried them in years. Rocky maybe thinks the cows 'really' big and I agree with him as, many years ago I was surrounded by huge black cows that had strayed into the front paddock of the house we were renting. I had to find help to get them back to where they belonged. I feel for him. All well here and you take care.

  3. Impressive, I have only just made a start on mine. I am not only a fair weather gardener I am a wimp so I am a seasonal gardener too.

  4. Delicious and very impressive. I still haven't ventured out into the garden yet - it's looking a bit wild out there - but there's showers forecast for the next few days so that's this week written off!

  5. How wonderful to discover a cauliflower popping up, I'm sure it will be delicious. I'm just a dabbler in gardening I'm afraid, although I do have my moments. I've been watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGC6Lqr3QDo on the Horticulture Channel, she's pretty inspiring and has an allotement and a little shed where she hangs bunting and seaside signs.........anyone who hangs bunting has got to be worth watching to my mind,lol. Anyway she's inspired me to sow some mini tomato's and peppers, they're sitting on my kitchen windowsill and I'm waiting for them to grow.

    Hope you had a lovely Easter Jo.

  6. Wow, the cauliflower looks amazing! Rocky's face says it all, Barry is a total wimp too - he met some racehorses the other day and while I was in my element around them Barry kept jumping up at my leg as if to say "rescue me mum!". Hope you're having a good week xx

  7. Well done on the cauliflower! We has PSB this year too, delicious. I'm not sure I have the space to grow it again, think I will sick with mainly salad, beet, fruit etc as they don't take up much space...but if I had an allotment I'd definately grow it :) xxx

  8. How lovely to have such a nice surprise, that cauli will taste all the better because it's come out of your own garden.

  10. I have a wimpy little dog. She yelps before she is ever hurt, if it looks like someone might step on her. Maybe I need to get her some training?

  12. Love your veg, lucky you for having something growing in your garden.

  13. Mmm, yummy veg - it amazes me that stuff still grows when it's so cold and wet, but I really am the world's worst gardener: full of hopes but easily distracted and liable to forget to water plants. Enjoy those homegrown veggies with your meal. x

  16. Well done on the cauli, it looks amazing. And on the PSB, it's not something I've had success with but it's such a delicious vegetable and at the time of year when it's extra valued, I think I should have another go. CJ xx

  18. Purple Sprouting Broccoli is wonderful isn't it, we have four plants in our garden producing spears for us. That cauli is amazing! I bet it tastes wonderful. Enjoy!

  19. PSB is a new thing for me, looks so interesting!

  20. That is one gorgeous looking, unblemished cauliflower - congrats! I do love homegrown but the plants are so huge and can get to smell a bit like school dinners - worth it though for a result like that. Any chance of getting you to change your mind about cutting down your teasels? I read that they're a food source for goldfinches so have deliberately planted teasels in the gardens here. Just saying ... :) C x

  23. Spring is definitely on the way! What a cute caulifower :) Hope Rocky keeps out of the cows' way! x

  24. Wow! I'm amazed that these veggies are almost ready for eating! I'm still waiting for our spring flowers to come fully out of the ground. That cauliflower is so perfect ;) Rocky does look a little worried there with the cow in the background. Cows can be intimidating ... I only like petting them through a fence. Enjoy your weekend Jo!
