growth spurt


I've finally booked my holiday, a narrow boat for the first week of October (57ft this time!) We collect the boat from Sydney Wharf in Bath, so exited!

Here are a couple of pictures taken in my back garden last week, all the rain we've had has helped! I have still got my veg patch (eight by six) and have added some grow bags in nice wooden surrounds to blend in. The courgettes are growing in the one in the picture. All the rain meant some of my tomato plants were ruined before they got into the veg patch, but I have about 8 so that should be enough for the three of us! The purple jalapeno plants I grew from plugs are growing well in my veg patch and I have tons of green/purple chillies everywhere. Even the tomato plants have flowers on but I doubt if they will give such a good crop this year, not much sunshine!




Anyway enjoy the rest of your week and garden or craft project. Amanda x

Your garden is looking lovely. I hope your tomatoes do ok outside. The weather's pretty rubbish this year!
