Saturday 8th August 2015 – My 1,000th post!!

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that I’ve waffled on, mainly about gardening, for 1,000 posts now!!! I’m not sure if I should apologise or not? I’ve clearly had lots to waffle on about, and I hope you’ve enjoyed it. There will be much more to come of my adventures down on my allotment and garden, and a few other things as well so don’t fret. There is more to this post than just telling you this exciting news, so here goes. I popped down the allotment this morning for about 2 and a half hours. Now I don’t usually go down on the weekend, but as it’s the holidays I do. It’s all coming along very well. I started by watering everything in the greenhouse. The Tomatoes are starting to turn, so hopefully it won’t be long until I can harvest my first one. Then I needed to see what needed to be harvested. I managed to pick a load more French Beans, which are now getting quite prolific now, I then popped to see if there were any more Squashes ready and sure enough there were a couple more ready. There are loads more on the way, so soon I’ll have an ample supply of them to roast in the oven.

What a lovely pair!! There was a slightly more sensible photo, but I like this one the best.

Now I’ve been waiting very patiently to harvest the first of my Cabbages, but today I decided I would finally cut one off. There are loads more to come, but sometimes you just can’t wait. I have to admit that I’m very proud of this one. In all the years I’ve grown Cabbages this year has been the best. I’m not sure what I did, may be it was the weather, I really don’t know. But I’m looking forward to eating this one.

What a lovely Cabbage you are, and with a wonderful firm heart to.

Then it was onto the weeding, watering and feeding of the beds from where I left off from last time. Any weeds that I come across are fairly small, so don’t take much to remove. I’ve also put a load more Strawberry runners in more tyres which is great, but there are still lots more to do. But I’ll get there eventually. Time to go now and make cakes and do other stuff. I may have a potter in the garden later on, but nothing too strenuous. It’s a gorgeous day so lunch was outside and I think dinner will be to. George is still camping in his tent at night in the garden, which he loves doing, I think he’s done it every night since Monday. Oh well, at least he’s enjoying himself, he is a Scout after all. Enjoy the weekend what ever you’re doing.
