2013 Project365 (Day 118)

Home grownThis afternoon The Little Mister and I went to a local garden centre to buy a small watering can

We came away with a watering can, lavender plants, rosemary, chives, tomato plants and a hose attachment. It was an expensive watering can!

This photo shows my bean plants growing nicely on my window ledge. It’s lovely to be able to eat our home-grown veg and hopefully we will get a decent crop.

The veggie patchDad’s vegetable patch is nearing the end of the season, some things have done really well like the carrots, other things like the tomatoes have been a complete disaster.

So, we are eating up the last few beans and carrots that have been coming through. Delicious! Here are Barnabas, Eden and Mum digging them up.

Just as well the veggie patch is coming to the end of the season though, dad has plenty to be getting on with in our house!

Beautiful begoniasWhen asked what my photo of the day should be Dad suggested that I took a picture of this three tiered planter that is planted with begonias. It really is very beautiful and I think it is Dad’s favourite at the moment.

His garden has won a few prizes this year, but the veggie patch hasn’t done so well. The potatoes did great, as did the carrots but the tomatoes got blight and the beans have been disappointing. You win some and you lose some I guess!

AlliumNo more sea pictures today, although we did go for a quick swim after work. It was really cold today, much chillier than yesterday, and wasn’t quite so enjoyable! It has been another beautiful day and we had a barbecue in the garden with Mum and Dad.

This allium is in Dad’s garden. I really like these flowers as they have such a structural shape. They look like lollipops stuck into the garden!

Sweet PeasDad’s garden is starting to look absolutely lovely. The vegetables are growing fast and the flowers are blooming.

One of my favourite flowers are Sweet Peas and there are loads of them growing up the fruit cage. To keep them flowering you have to keep picking them. So, almost every room in the house smells absolutely glorious with the sweet fragrance of Sweet Peas.

Sadly they die quite quickly once picked so we have to go and pick more!
