Things are hotting up in the greenhouse! The tomatoes need daily watering and weekly feeding. These are my new variety of beefsteak tomato Country Taste
My banana Musa Basjoo
is putting on a new leaf each week!
Sweet corn is about 3ft tall at the moment and growing each day. I have planted a climbing French bean Blauhilde
under each stalk.
The pumpkins Rouge vif D'Etamps are starting to crawl everywhere! There are plenty of female flowers and lots and lots of little pumpkin-lets! I am really looking forward to seeing these beautiful red, heritage variety. Seeds given to me during a visit to the USA last year where I met fellow blogger Petunia.
Lots and lots of little baby pumpkins!
The purple podded peas are really fat and ripe. I have hung the peas and the vine up against a fence to dry off properly. Saving seed for next year.
I let one of my parsnips go to seed from last year! What a fantastic, beautiful plant now more than 6 feet tall and covered in yellow flowers followed by attractive seed heads. I will try to save some seed for next year.
