My food gardens are starting to take shape. This weekend I managed to barter for a banana tree and some paw-paw trees which will be delivered to me this week.
I also added some wild garlic, chillies, a gooseberry bush, feverfew, mint, a new rosemary bush (I drowned my last one)
I rescued this chilli bush from a nursery where it was being eaten badly by bugs. I hope its happier here.
Got this Aloe from a good friend – will use it for Aloe vera
Wild basil looking good
A gifted sprig of mint is thriving in its new home.
Parsley, chives and oreganum doing well
Gooseberry planted in its new home
Feverfew – I still have to experiment with this herb
New wild garlic – I have had this plant in may homes before but never used it for eating – I am going to give it a try.
And finally – a now Fred proofed raised bed
with new seeds peeping through. Planted here are, tomatoes, cucumbers, rocket, beetroot, more chives, radishes, baby marrows, and probably some others that I can’t remember.
What do you have growing now?
