Little reasons to be cheerful.

Sweetpea.

Adding a little bit of colour to the plot. Next year I will add more, especially plants that deter slugs. A flower fortress!

Banana Shallots.

These shallots may not look like bananas, but they sure can make your eyes water, unlike bananas.

Mixed Garlic.

Excellent crop of garlic this year! A small, smelly triumph.

Fennel.

This is my first time growing fennel. It’s a bit diminutive, but tastes great. Looks a little exotic too!

Courgettes.

After a false start, it appears I may get a crop of courgettes after all. Very exciting altogether!

Carrots and Charlotte Potatoes.

This has been a poor year for my potatoes and carrots. The potatoes are ‘scabby’ in more ways than one, and have suffered a bout of blight to boot. The carrot tops and seedlings have been devoured by birds and slugs. Only a few have survived.

  1. Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but my book, The Bellman Chronicles, will be FREE to download on Sept. 10 – 11! Check it out on my Amazon Kindle page.. You won’t be disappointed. And if you can slip me a review, I’d be forever grateful…
