21st Century Garden March 2015

As promised I bring you photos of my garden. To be honest there isn't much to see yet, but isn't that half the fun? A six month or so journey to see what grows and what doesn't. 

So far the only real sign of life from the fruit trees is courtesy of the pear. The blossom buds are on the verge of bursting open.

We have improved around the pond, are are waiting for the clematis plants to frantically climb the trellis.

We have added a gooseberry bush to fruit corner and thinned out the raspberries.

The vegetable patch is bare, although that strip of soil to the left of the photo has onions and carrots sleeping below its surface.

The only real colour comes from the primrose tubs in the front garden. 

In trays of compost on window sills and around the house we have sown tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, peas, butternut squash and courgettes. Hopefully next month we will have lots more photos to share. 


  1. I am really, really looking forward to a yard full of colour. It has been winter for far too long.

  2. I hope Mike is feeling better and so, thus, will you... spring has come much too early to the Olympic Peninsula, we have less than 5 percent of the snow base we should have! It is going to be a very dry summer, or we are going to be very dependent on the rain that falls. My tulips are up, nearly gone by. Sigh.
