A Little Veg Plot Next To A Building Site.

 I looked out of the door of a site cabin one Friday.  I could see cabbages growing behind the security fencing.  What a sight to gladden my heart. "Jack in the green" Jethro Tull lyrics began to play in my mental jukebox: 

"Well I don't  think so.  I saw grass growing through the pavements..."

I forgot I had been listening to the not very dulcet tones of a Kango all morning.  Chiselling limestone plaster off walls up on a planked scaffold.



Through the site security fencing.   Cabbages growing and and a bespoke homemade greenhouse.
Another photo  of the veg plot behind the bollards.



Lovely heads of winter cabbages. They look like Savoys to me.

There was a short flight of steps going down in the homemade greenhouse.  It reminded me of old Anderson air raid shelters I sometimes found growing up in Northwest England.   

I wondered why so much effort had been made to construct the steps?  I thought it was probably for raised beds and of course I was right?




Raised beds on both sides and a path in the middle.  They were over a three foot high and full of wonderful sandy and friable soil.  Imagine what root vegetables you could grow in those raised beds? Giant Parsnips, Carrots and Beetroots.

Not a bad way of spending ten minutes of your half hour dinner break exploring and photographing the nuns vegetables garden.  It was a credit to them and inspired me!

  1. So you have been working at an old convent or nunnery? I guess such places are in decline even in such a staunchly Catholic country as Ireland. Good to have a nose around like that but I bet Mick the Foreman said, "Where the feck have ye been with yer feckin' camera this time ye jackeen? Now get back to work or I'll clout ye wi' mi shillelagh!"

    3. This can be helpful...Before I began Doctor Aziba natural penis enlargement Product I measured 4 Inches in erect length, and 3 inches in erect girth. While flaccid I measured 3.4 Inches long. I began using his product, slightly skeptical I admit, and just 2 weeks later I was very happy with my progress. I measured 7.5 inches erect length and 6.5 inches erect girth, and 5.5 inches flaccid length. I was actually quite shocked at the huge gains I’d had, and continued using the product regularly, sticking to the usage schedule rigorously. After about 2-3 weeks I am 8.2 Inches in erect length and 8.1 Inches in erect girth. I am also 7.2 inches long while flaccid. This has had a huge impact on my life, not only has my sex life improved greatly, I feel much more confident and proud.

  2. Yes an old Convent which was was/is being gutted. The next phase is turning it into social housing for old people and the church will become a community centre for the residents.

    I showed some of the lads my photos of the veg plot and greenhouse and asked them if they grew anything themselves? One lad said: "I once did grow some vegetables but I was too busy with work." I was well pleased to see the cabbages growing after a morning Kangoing lime mortar.

  3. Are those cabbages ready for harvesting yet? You could have one with your Christmas dinner.

  4. They are nice and small JayCee. I bet they are delicious after Jack Frost and his wife painted them the other day. Christmas Day is on a Friday this year. Our sprouts and leeks will be harvested for that special day.😊

  8. Hi Linda. They do look very healthy. I har a look at our Brussel sprouts today and they look good for Christmas dinner. Hopefully your Broccoli will grow some Broccoli soon.

  9. Darn darn darn. Why didn't I think of brussel sprouts! I will put a note on my calendar. I would love to be able to cook some from our garden at Xmas. Thanks Dave. When did you plant yours ?

    ReplyDelete
  10. We grew them from seed Linda. But you can buy veg plants in the summer. They like very firm ground and not too much nitrogen or else the sprouts blow and you're just left with leaves and a big stalk.

  11. There's a sunken greenhouse like that near us, in a walled garden of what is now a 'country park'. They are lovely spaces, quite different to ordinary greenhouses somehow. It's always the glasshouses I drool over on property pages!

  12. Hi the veg artist. A sunken greenhouse. That's a great description. Such a clever design and no doubt very hard work digging and constructing the greenhouse. I would love a walled kitchen garden like the one at Heligan in Cornwall. I saw a great one at Glin Castle in Limerick last year.

    I always look at the garden first and see whether it's a flat site and accessible from all sides when watching programmes like "Escape To The Country".
