I LOVE August in the garden, it's sunny, most of the planting has been done and lots of things are growing and being exciting!
I don't want to speak too soon, but I think my bell peppers are going to be a huge success this year. Last year they didn't fruit until about October, by which time it was way too cold, this year they're in the greenhouse at the new house, which is in a much warmer, sunnier spot and they're doing much better!
We have two plum trees, the first one has already finished plumming purple plums, this second one has just started getting ripe, pinky, green plums on it, soooo many plums!
This is Pierre the pumpkin, all the way from France (a present from one of mum's friends), he started off all puny, but he's making up for it now and has run all over the garden, he has lots of flowers and lots of yellow pumpkin babies! I also have two courgette plants that I've already had about 8 courgettes from, good job the snail likes them too! The courgettes have been sooo much happier in the ground than last years attempts to grow them in pots!
I had broad beans planted in this patch, once they were finished I pulled them up and we've planted 2 rows of beetroot and a row of spinach plants in the space, I also planted some more broad beans (no photo of them) about three weeks ago up by the courgette patch, and they've already got beans on them! Must have been the perfect time for them to go in!
I didn't take photos of everything, we also have potatoes, peas, kale, broccoli, cabbage and lots of herbs growing too - phew! How are your gardens growing this month?
