Friday 19th June:
Further to day nine of this challenge, when my neighbour and I re-potted some of my courgette plants; the garden is starting to look very bright and alive 🙂 I’ve had quite a few courgette flowers but now the vegetables are beginning to show too. My blackcurrants, although few and far between, are ripening up nicely and today I scoffed a couple off the bush. I’ve got a very lonely pea pod growing – I’m not sure if there will be many more coming as the plant is still struggling to climb but it’s all still in the experimentation phase – what I can grow in containers and what I can’t.
My borage is flowering, so is my mini buddleia and there are a plethora of bees and flying things which is lovely to see. If I wasn’t growing things in the courtyard then the bees wouldn’t be there. I love being able to contribute my little bit to their lives.
Walter is still doing well, I spent the evening on my sofa with him. I’ve seen some magpies in my courtyard eating the bird seed I put out and I can’t help thinking that if they had the choice they would like my little Walt for dinner aswell!
