It's been beautiful here in West Cork for the last week or so. We have managed to get the veg plot neat and tidy. It's a lot easier now that we have reduced the size of it by thirty percent. Here's the latest pictures.
Pig slats for paths. Gristelina hedge cuttings growing nicely.
Japanese onions planted last Autumn. They seem to be liking the sun.
Our Summer onions starting to sprout.
Dogwood cuttings sprouting in a raised bed. They are asking 6 Euros a piece for these in the garden centres.
First early potatoes sticking out their shoots. I quickly raked soil over them.
Homemade compost heap. Not very neat but it makes great compost.
Strawberries growing in old tyres. Hope the Cadmium doesn't poison us.
Shallots sprouting in baths.
Fido walking on my newly seeded wildflower/apple and pear orchard. She's stood next to peas growing in an old stainless steel sink.
Nettles and Docks growing up the sides of my early potatoes.
Potatoes in an old 'ride on' mower grass box growing in the poly-tunnel. You can see a piece of last years Parsnips sgrowing with them. Only a few weeks and we will have our first new potatoes.
The garlic loves growing inside the poly-tunnel in the old tractor wheel rims.
Lots of veg plants and bedding plants growing in the poly-tunnel. We get our seeds from Lidl and Aldi for 79 Cents. No longer do we buy veg plants.
Domino posing in the sun. He spends his time catching mice in the compost heap.
