we have all together three raised beds of cabbages….around 35/40 of them!!! …the good thing is they are all at very different stages of growth so hopefully we will not be harvesting them all at once…insh’Allah

Tomorrow, I’m giving cauliflowers another chance…..last year they flopped big time so I can only try..I’ll keep you updated, of course…

Hot enough…

to bring almost all the plants in the greenhouse out ….yesterday, I planted the artichokes in the ground….today was the turn of the sweetcorn, cabbages and some butternut squashes….tomorrow it’ll be tomato and peas day insh’Allah…..the plot is starting to look ย the way I like it…busy busy busy…..

the little one in the middle is not quite ready to go out yet so I potted it on…the other two were pot bound so hopefully they now have all the room they need to grow…insh’Allah….

Savoy cabbages….grown by moi from seed!!!! ย …yes, quite pleased with myself…..alhamdulilah

I just realized that I did not take pics of the other stuff…..it’s hard to remember when you are trying to do a hundred things at the same time….I’ll try harder tomorrow…

Wishing you all a peaceful and productive weekend….

Looks like this year I might be growing ‘my own’ cabbages…you see, in the past I have failed big time and the cabbages I have grown have been seedlings gifted to me by Archie, a very experience allotmenteer….the majority of the allotment neighbours are ahead of me by at least 15 years and I don’t mind it one bit cause they are all so helpful …always happy to help but without interfering…they understand that we all do things differently….I am still finding my feet and trying out new things…Generally speaking I would say that I fall into the ‘no dig’ type of gardener…want to know more about it? Then, Charles Dowding is your man….

Salaams y hasta la vista,
