So How Does your Garden Grow??? Well ours NOW grows in a Greenhouse!
Daulton, my oldest son has been taking a deep interest in the garden lately which has stemmed from him asking me why im snapping pictures of our flowers and even weeds. Which of course im snapping away to take part in Annie’s How does your Garden Grow? Linky every thursday. Hes been out in the Garden watering the plants, de-weeding and cutting all the stray grass that the lawnmower cant reach.
So whilst we were out at the shops the other day he just popped out with, “can i have a greenhouse to grow my own fruit and vegetables?”, i was stunned it wasn’t like him, he likes to be a hermit and if we allowed him to play on the Xbox for the rest of his life he probably would!. So i replied with yes of course.
I bought some lovely smelly herb shrubs, Lavender, Thyme and Primrose… They smell absolutely gorgeous, I’ve kept them in the greenhouse until i decide where to put them .
So in the big pot at the left we have Watercress ( i figured getting him some watercress would be good, as there seem to grow fairly quick, so will give some quick reward for his efforts)
In the Trays we have alsort, Peppers, Tomato and some beans (cant remember for the life of me what exactly there were lol)
In the trays we have lettuce, carrots and something else haha (its a good job we like surprises)
In the big pots to the right we have Strawberry plants, i hope we planted them the right way up :/ I think we will have to move these shortly as our next door neighbour who is quite handy with greenhouse and growing tomato’s etc, suggested to grow them in the garden but cover with netting. So we may do this at the weekend :).
Last week i mentioned about buying some Macro lens for my DSLR camera, i was hoping that they would of arrived in time for last weeks linky, but there didnt… When they did arrive, i couldnt wait to get out in the garden and test them out and here is one of my photos, i love how close i could get! and here is another that i used for #MySundayPhoto….
When i took the photo i didnt see this little guy just sitting there, it wasnt untill i plugged my SDCard into the computer and looked through the pictures, here he pops up.. Now im aware that this little guy isnt as cute as i may first of though as i think hes a Aphid? and likes to attack growing Fruit and Vegetables… But hes my 1st little bug to appear in my photos so ill let him off 🙂
So how does your Garden Grow? Got any tips on how to successfully make these seeds grow? (im pretty useless lol)
