For years now I’ve been in a gardenless apartment trying to plant a few little bits on window boxes, so that fact that I now have a garden is absolutely amazing! And I’ve been getting to work on it 🙂
While the house itself has been looked after and done up recently, the garden has just been ignored, so it was in a bit of a state when we moved in.
The hope is eventually to have a garden full of edible plants so I’ve made a little start and yesterday I picked my first strawberry, …which I then accidently gave to the bunnies and they didn’t eat but got covered in hay so well I’m not going to try it now! I have also started the war against the slugs though and I think they’re winning! All my tomatillo plants and the seedlings I tried to grow to replace them, have been eaten, and they’re having a good go at my pea plants, and my poor little bell pepper plants one pepper doesn’t look like it’s going to make it 🙁
So morecopper tape has arrived today, and I have 6 more slug traps to put down, and I will continue to garlic spray the plants every evening, They’re probably going to win the war, but not every battle!
But so far my tomatoes are doing well, the varieties I got from the garden centre are starting to show fruit but the indigo ones I bought online are still a while off…I really really hope we get black tomatoes off them!
