I thought I would share how well our back garden has been doing this year. We have gradually been adding more and more fruit and vegetables to the garden and we really have a good bounty of fruit this year.
We love rhubarb and wanted to grow it but were very aware that this can be a problem with dogs. So after some thought my husband set about making a small contained area in which the dogs were kept away and we could safely grow the rhubarb. I must say, we have had no problem doing this and the rhubarb has flourished, as you can see.
The blackberries are doing just as well and we have managed to pick a few already! We have done well with this bush for a few years now and after cutting it right back this year has been another good one. There are loads of berries ready to ripen and we will soon have a good bounty of these too!
This year we have had a try at growing some butternut squashes from seed. They have took well and grown into good plants and some squashes are beginning to develop. We will need to wait a bit longer to see how these grow.
We have been thinking about spring flowers and I am on the look out for bulbs ready to plant out for next year. How have you been getting on in your gardens?
Bye for now
