August into Setember - Veg garden update
Sorry , August has been such a busy month......so much going on in the garden !
Anyway , remember the late end of July Kale seed sowing ? Well they grew away fast in their seed tray , I decided to hold them back as the space was taken up with other things .
Here are the other things ... dwarf french beans , cucumber , tomatoes , Romaine Cos lettuce , beetroots and basil . ..and I,ve picked lots from them . I noticed that the few remaining lettuces are now beginning to bolt and the beetroots are certainly ready to pull .
Kale seedlings waiting in the wings . I do have another patch of Kale which I grew earlier in the year at the other end of this bed . I will check on those tomorrow .
Notice how small a space I have grown all these tasty vegetables in ! Just from that little brown patch of earth ! I am leaving in the Dwarf French beans , cucumber and the tomato plant as I think there could be more to come .
The baby Kale plants are going in here .
Tomatoes - well the best ones were the ones my husband grew in his Solar Shed .
The next best were the ones in his VegTrug . The Cherokee Purple Toms that I grew were sown too late in the greenhouse but there is still time !
From my veg garden I have pretty much filled this bowl every day from this seasons growing . So I am very happy , something tasty for us to eat and fill our tums every day is all I want . I am not growing to sell at the market , nor am I trying to grow prize-winning monsters .
So , I planted up the baby Kale , scattered my crushed egg shells ....
......scattered some horticultural grit .....and put back the luminous lizard .
Give them a good drink to settle them all in and fix up the plastic chicken wire again .
The only other thing is that I may need to find some environmesh to cover from the Cabbage white butterflies . I haven't got any at the moment and it is so expensive .
So I,ve got to go away and think about it .
