End of Another Year

And time for the harvest.  It's like a treasure hunt, digging for golden potatoes

Haven't the Busy Beez done well?  We have a nice healthy harvest of potatoes, peas, onions and garlic.

We've had so much success with the tomato plants that the Busy Beez have sold a great deal of plants to raise money for gardening essentials such as compost.  They sold like the proverbial hot cakes.  We still have a lot of plants in the sandpit that will soon begin to form fruit.  Yes, tomoatoes are fruit!  They have seeds inside, which vegetables do not have.

Yet more potatoes, these will be harvested in the autumn.

Watering is all important even if it's been raining, this is because the foliage of the plants can cover the soil below like an umbrella, keeping off the rain.  It is also the favoured task for the Beez.

The young tree saplings are strong and healthy.  Soon to be planted out.

Have a wonderful summer holiday.  If you've bought a tomato plant or two, do take photographs of your own harvest, and we'll add them to the blog!
