Can I Dig Up My Potatoes? #WordlessWednesday

Posted on 15th September 2010 in family/ garden/ plants/ potatoes/ strawberries/ tomatoes/ wordless wednesday

Can I dig these up yet?

Now that DS2 is a veggie I need reinforcements….

I’m referring to the potato plants if you can distinguish them in that sea of green – they’ve had flowers which got blown away in the mad wind and rain the other day.

Moving on from potatoes….should I give up on these tomatoes or will they still ripen?

In better news, at least my strawberries are doing what they are supposed to be doing!

So – the spuds – how do I know when to dig ’em up?!

Corny #WordlessWednesday

Posted on 14th July 2010 in child/ children/ corn/ garden/ pieris/ plants/ wordless wednesday

This is growing, in my garden, next to it’s twin. In the same little bed there are also peppers, strawberries and tomato plants – oh and a pieris (it just looks nice ok). Nothing monumental except that I normally kill everything, I am the opposite of ‘green fingered’ maybe ‘black finger of death’ or ‘plant murdering fingers’ but defo not green. Yet these corn plants stand tall and sturdy and the children and I are watering them everyday and waiting for the day when they give us corn.
