Early June garden update

This butterhead lettuce (though not fully grown) has my name written all over it, won’t be today, but soon, very soon….20130608-181338.jpgOK, not longer after the photo and I’ve picked it šŸ™‚

Other developments in Tim’s garden? Well, funny you should ask….

The pixy plums are putting on weight:20130608-181812.jpg
Note: spot my new and 90% finished shed in the background šŸ™‚

The first apple buds on the young Spartan (three years old / second year in my garden). This is the best photo I could get: 20130609-110816.jpg
Then the potatoes, earthed up (still a few to do):20130609-214030.jpgEvery time I cut the lawn the grass cuttings will go around the potatoes. They make a good mulch, talking of which, it’s very important for runner beans, he’s one just starting its run:20130609-215239.jpgSure, a little slug munched, but it’ll be fine. I think you can see the slug pellets in shot, I’ve tried other techniques but pellets are the only thing that have coped with the demand.

The leeks are starting to be more visible in photo now, still a bit grass like next to the onions:20130609-214342.jpgAgain, it’s worth saying again, I’m really happy with the wire, it’s protecting against the cat running through and holding the onions up a bit more.

Finally, the raspberry plant had some bees gathering nectar points from it:20130609-220210.jpgIt’s surprisingly difficult to photograph a busy bee!
