Haven't been doing much around my daughters garden for the past month or so, too busy getting things organised for my new house and I suppose that will be the way it will be for the next couple of months anyway. Last saturday I rescued this green house from ending up in the builders skip. It will take pride of place in my new garden, did I mention my new house is in 0.8 of an acre, so plenty of room for anything I want to do. Would hope to start on the gardening side of things in sept as I'm sure my better half has plenty of plans for me to do work, work that is, not gardening.

2 of the apple tree's which were planted last september seem to have little apple's appearing, hopefully they'll grow on into something nice and juicy.

Have been late planting out to the 3 raised beds, it's been a bit of a struggle to keep the plants in the greenhouse alive for the past month or so as the day's have been ultra hot, the spuds seem to be growing away, bushy but no great height, don't know why this is but I'm sure time will tell.

Have been missing for a while, between work and other problems just keeping up with things has been a struggle. Things are flying ahead, this year won't be a showy year as I just don't seem to be able to find the time to get on top of things. I recon 2010 will be my year.

Marigold 'durango' grown from seed this year again are doing well, nice big flowers and plenty of blooms per flower.

Gillardia's grown from seed last year, did well but are even better this year.

Lupins 'tutti fruiti' again grown from seed last year but are much stronger this year.
