A break between rain showers

We have finally had two weeks of much-needed rain.Our water barrels are over flowing. Today was the second time in two weeks that we have had a glint of sun. We hurried out and planted the second batch of borlotti beans.



We have planted garlic, cabbage, broccoli and Cauliflower a little over two weeks ago. You can see it in the picture below. We have celery coming up in the green house. My strawberries have buds on them already. We can now begin to harden off the first batch of corn in the green house.  The borlotti beans are planted in the veggie bed, which freed up space in the greenhouse for the corn.


The plan is to have the corn planted outside by this weekend. That is if the weather cooperates with us.

  1. Hopefully, the weather does co-operate! I wish I had your space near my home.. There are loads of things I would love to do with my garden – if only…

    • I am lucky that we have such a nice landlord. We extended our veggie patch fencing this year and made space for the green house. He was helpful and encouraging on how nice the veggie patch is coming along.

      • Guess it is good to see the property being used – better than him having to deal with a meadow of weeds 😉

      • The meadow behind us is used for grazing his cows. Thank goodness for that because the weeds are eaten before they turn to seed. We were so glad that our landlord was open to the idea of us having a vegetable garden. You are right because He has said that he is glad that we are making improvements to the area by making a garden.

      • Good that the cows eat the weeds 🙂
