THE LEAFS ARE STILL TINY, THEY WILL NEED TIME TO MATURE
I covered my fig during Winter, when we got our first beautiful Spring days I removed the coverings. Then all of a sudden we got a few unexpected nightfrosts and my fig tree took a beating, frozen tiny figs, frozen leafbuds…. But now it is slowly recovering and leafbuds are opening and here and there I finds tiny figs. The one above is the biggest. I fear I won’t have a lot of figs this year, as the first batch were frozen. But hey, my fig tree is still alive !
Have a great weekend !
It’s a lovely sunny and warm day and of course I took some pictures for you to see.
THE BUD OF A CLEMATIS, I DON’T KNOW WHICH ONE BUT IT WILL BE DARK BLUE WITH YELLOW STAMENS
CLEMATIS ETOILE VIOLETTE, A VERY EASY AND LONG FLOWERING CLEMATIS OF THE VITICELLA FAMILY
HONEYSUCKLE, CLEMATIS AND A SMALL LEAF IVY ARE CLIMBING TOGETHER ON THE GARAGE WALL
THE FIGS ARE DOING GREAT
I LOVE THE BACKSIDE OF A FIG LEAF
A WOOD PIDGEON MADE HER NEST IN MY CLIMBING GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR ROSE
SEDUM ACRE IN A POT
AND LOADS OF BERRIES ON A SPINELESS HOLLY (ilex aquifolium J.C.Van Tol), THE BIRDS WILL LOVE THEM WHEN THEY ARE RIPE
Have a fab weekend and enjoy your garden !
My fruits and vegetables are growing nicely, we have hot weather and the climate in the greenhouse is tropical but as long as we keep watering well everything is growing.
THE GRAPES ARE GETTING BIGGER, THEY WILL BECOME DARK BLUE, THERE ARE NOT BIG AND BEAUTIFUL BUNCHES BUT THEY TAST GOOD
AND SO ARE THE TOMATOES
MORE TOMATOES BUT OF ANOTHER KIND
AND THE BELL PEPPERS
AND THE COURGETTES
THE MAGGI PLANT (LEVISTICUM OFFICINALE) IF YOU LIKE TO MAKE YOUR OWN SOUP THIS PLANT IS REALLY THE BEST TO GIVE TASTE TO YOUR SOUP, IT IS A BIG PLANT THOUGH, UP TO 2 METERS.
THESE ARE THE LEAFS OF THE MAGGI PLANT YOU NEED ABOUT A FOOT OF A STEM WITH LEAFS FOR 2 LITRES OF SOUP.
THE SAGE IS THRIVING BETWEEN THE LEAFS OF THE YELLOW COURGETTES
I REALLY NEED TO MAKE SOUP SOON, LOOK AT ALL THE CELERY ! BUT IS IS JUST TOO HOT AT THE MOMENT !
AND I NEVER HAD BIGGER FIGS BEFORE BUT THAT IS COS OF THE HOT WEATHER WE HAVE BEEN HAVING FOR A FEW WEEKS ON END.
How is your veggie garden comming along ?
Thanks for visiting my garden !
We are trying to grow a bit of fruit and veg in the garden, we have a greenhouse where we grow a dark blue grape, tomato’s, courgettes, some herbs, cucumber and strawberries.
Outside we have a vegetable garden on leggs so that it is easy to remove weeds and thin seedlings.
AS WE CAN ONLY START PLANTING IN THE GREENHOUSE AFTER THE FROSTS, ABOUT MID MAY, THE TOMATO’S ARE ONLY HAVING FLOWERS AT THE MOMENT
THE COURGETTES ARE REALLY DOING WELL
OUR VEGGIE GARDEN ON LEGGS WITH SALAD, STRAWBERRIES, ONIONS, CELERY AND FENNEL, CARROTS…..
THE SMALL TWIGS YOU SEE AND THE RIBBONS AND STUFF IS TO KEEP THE BIRDS OUT, THAT WORKS WELL BUT I WISH I COULD DO SOMETHING AGAINST THE SLUGS !!!! And ofcourse my pride and joy ; my fig tree !
Have a great day all !!
