After seeing my famous - ok they're not actually famous - strawberry smoothie some of you asked to see my veg patch.
Now remember I did tell you that it's overgrown by strawberries and weeds. I was serious.
This is a side view with established, not in the veg patch, plants in the frame too. That's the bush to the bottom right and the very green bush to the middle right. The tall things with purple flowers are weeds - that my neighbour gets very overexcited telling me are murder to get rid of.
Yep see I did warn you. And yes I am suitable embarassed. :)
But look at what one trip to the strawberry patch yields! This is more of a full on(ish) view. It is quite a big veg patch which you can't really get a feel of with all the blinking weeds. When I was working on it, that is not letting the weeds win. I grew tatties, cabbage, beans, onions, beetroot, rhubarb (which is still in there ignoring the weeds) and lots of salad things.
This is my garden in all it's not been weeded for far a good few weeks, nor has the lawn been mown cos it's run out of petrol, beauty.
Plus the fact it keeps raining has prevented much mowing of lawns ;)
So there you are, my haven to all insects, butterflies and birds - oh and weeds!
And greenfly!! What is with this infestation of horrible little green things? Is the whole country getting them or are we just really lucky (not) up here?
