Week 21 – Year 2 (flaming & flower)

29th June – 3rd July 2009

We had a heat touch in England, ‘flaming’ June at least lived up the name given… all my fans been taken out from the loft and have a good turn on….

The heat gives out the best colour on all the flower plants and here are some I caught their best poise….

Week 20 – Year 2 (FF & MJ)

22nd June – 28th June 2009

Shocked to hear that actress Farrah Fawcett and singer Michael Jackson both passed away this week…. both were with my time era… sort of accompany my yesteryears… the ‘Charlie’s Angles’ and the ‘Jackson Five’….  Their achievements had given lots of people and myself great pleasures and joy… wish them both rest in peace now….

At last we have some downpours this week and ease a bit of the dry spell…. forecast a mini heat spell for the coming week…

Cabbage Tundra

At last I have planted out the 10 cabbages in the area I have harvested all the winter onions… as a rule, again covered up from the pigeons….

Spaghetti Squashes

My SS seems settled down where they are now and in the greedy side planted couple Dwarf Beans at the corner, guess they’ll be swarm by the squashes soon…

Three Sisters Planting

The trial with this method of planting is taken place so far OK, I shall make them a bit roomy next year as I can see them starts a bit squashed and I can imagine when they are full grown… probably all tied up each other….

Fruit Pie

New Plants

I have sowed some Pak Choi and Chinese cabbage seeds a week ago and have pick them into individual pots…. sowed some Dwarf Beans too…. The problems is I have to clear up some space for them in the coming weeks….

10 winter cabbages ‘Tundra’ will be planted in next week… for better or worse as they are growing really fast in my tiny pots….

Spaghetti Squashes have planted in too…. triple tripod is up for the climbing habit….

Harem

I put the name Harem because the colour of the material…. so pinky…. Mike from plot 11 gave me some of his covering material for my berries protecting them from the flying intruders and they are pigeons….. the main culprit….
