I used to have a lovely little herb garden but I switched things around and gave away lots and lots of cuttings bet you've guessed what happened ! I had to start all over again
At the moment I have oregano, corriander, parsley and sage in the greenhouse but I will be planting them outside shortly. I'm considering removing one of the benches in the greehouse and putting in 2/3 tomatoe plants this year , my son had a lovely variety last year he grew from seed- small cherry type but the flavour was really good and the crop he got seemed to go on forever- so I'm just waiting hoping he puts some more seed in and I'll get some plants from him. My daughter who lives near me is keen on growing her own vegetables too and she's always telling me to grow more myself but i keep saying I dont have any room to plant anymore -she looks on that as a joke because I have a huge garden- but I would need to dig up some of my lawn to do that and I wont do that because its good large area for the grandchildren to play in and for my dogs to run around in.
The other seeds I'm putting in shortly will be Tagettes and egg flower plants ( not aubergines) they are both little yellow flowers that last a long time and give a lovely show of colour. My other daughter in France and her husband grow all their own vegetables too. They are exceptionally lucky because they have apple trees, pear trees, kiwi fruits, grapes, figs trees and walnut trees and a few other kinds too that I cant remember.
The one thing I can grow without much bother is dandelions
My problem now is I really
need help with the garden because its really far too much work for me to keep it as it should look and I get frustrated because I love gardening. I have a young lad who cuts the grass but he doesnt know much about plants/flowers so I'm trying to find someone who knows about plants and wont pull them up thinking they're weeds which has happened before!! even 2/3 hours a week would be a big help. Just a pity I cant train my too wee pooches to dig and weed at the same time
Going off to have a coffee then off to bed, got an early appointment at the opticians tomorrow morning my Doctor has advised me to have the drops put in my eyes this time just to make sure my High Blood Pressure hasnt caused any damage to my eyes. I wouldnt be able to drive back home for a while after I had the drops put in so my neighbour is taking me
I would love to have a magic wand just to stand there and everything to turn out how I would like it to be
