Week 39 – Year 2

2nd November – 8th November 2009

A windy wet week, and at the end of the week we had the first of wintry feel … mostly dashed to the plot to empty my vegetable peelings to the compost bin or brought some left over meat for the fox there….

A quiet Guy Fawkes Night this year, probably because of the foul weather or the tight economic affordability…..

Board Beans

Noted that my early sown Board Beans at (Week 36 – Year 2) has shown sign of growth…. it is very encouraging….

Week 38 – Year 2 (Spaghetti Squashes Gift)

26th October – 1st November 2009

The Halloween has came and gone this year, only have one “trick or treat” knock at the door, in fact these few years has been less and less “trick or treat” at our area, probably the children were now grown up …. they prefer indoor party and have their “trick or treat” among their friends….

Spaghetti Squashes – Gift

Since I have harvested all the Spaghetti Squashes and cannot consume all, the best way is to share with friends who like them and here they go as my gift to Ho’s family…. the pretty bows lift up the appearance…

Feltham First Peas

Sow some peas that grow through winter months, bought this peas from Henleaze Garden centre…. mix the pea with some grits then sow in 2 rows, this is a trick I learnt from others that if there are mice the grits can help save the peas… hahaha …. (the rest of the peas seed I gave to Shirley to try on)…. then I erect the usual pea support and cover with some Tansy leaves for deter pests (suppose this may work)….

Garlic

While I was at the garden centre, bought another pack of garlic and here they are sow at the front bed, since we all love garlic in cooking and that is really eat lot not waste….

Lettuce

My winter Lettuce seems growing fast in this change of season… the 3 lines of Spring Onion which I sow in between has also shoot up too, together with all these weeds…. the saying “good and bad are companion in all” is real true….

Spring Hero

I have not prepare well for this planting, but I have to try on so I put all 10 young plants at bed 3, protect by the half cut plastic bottles and hope to get around to do something about them in later days….
