Thank you for all the congratulations for pasting my 30 hours  with master composters i have had left in the comments meant a lot to

sowing some seeds

Below are the seeds that I sowed yesterday I forgot to video like a I normal do

please forgive me as I know how many of you enjoy my videos the flowers I have never grown before but have the cauliflower.

Yes from some magazine that  I brought in the past and just stored away

but as I have a 2nd garden to find things for home grown would be better than shop buying  even thought I would get a refund for buying  the items








have a blessed day weekend and happy growing  in the fall

My winter fall seeds have arrive


So I better get yo finishing clearing the green house out and tiding it up ready for me to sow even I still do not have the area completely ready yet


I still have my strawberry’s waiting for me to open them and let them drink some water for an hour or two it said an hour on the packet before planting them but not sure were  I want them two go  at present

4 of this


Then 2 of these


All nice summer fruiting ones   I have had no luck with growing them from seed  at all

I do keep trying if I get some on a magazine but have not brought many lately last year I was give seven from neighbor and they died on me never mind hopefully I have better luck this time a round  If I can get them soaking after this post

I think I need to change my routine again as soon as my David leaves for work I am in front of the PC doing emails and watching the You Tubes that come with in the emails  and some times they can take up to   all day  . Be fore I realizes I got to think of sorting tea out ,

Must say David is very understanding and the only one who moans is yours truly

Like when I do want to cut the grass the mower will not start for me  but I still have some new plants to plant sitting out side in the back garden on top of my BB Q  which we have not use at all this year  never mind maybe next year

We still not got the big wildlife pond in the garden but hopefully it will soon  be in by the end of the year praying hard it will be .

Well I end this post here and go and give these strawberry’s a drink

enjoy your gardens while you can have a blessed day

this has the 2 Elsanta crowns in





that has the 4 strawberry crowns Cambridge favorites










Back garden photos

I took these this morning and as I have to keep deleting some of my photo to put new ones up I am trying out this app with Instagram and movie maker to make a slide show for the blog  so far so good .

when you look at the long hedge were I tried to grow under neath it it looks impossible to as it keeps coming further out THE HEDGE UNLESS I TRIM IT EVERY MONTH

in middle if cleaning greenhouse out the white netting hiding my courgette is out side I was afraid I would loose all my fruit with it sitting on shelving and not in the right size put to start with so  I used what I had  the time

I have not taken photo but the grapevine is doing good it next doors last year I kept pruning it only  once and it another source of food for the wildlife as not sure when to harvest them when green or red  very small fruit on them they did not take the dead wood away in the winter ,

So I better this year were I can as it though metal fence  handy as some of my compost bins are near by so easy to put cuttings into the bins

I will this post here for now happy gardening until next time

have a blessed day

As a Volunteer Growing Buddy you will inspire Golding Home residents to have a go at gardening and to begin to grow some fruit and vegetables. You don’t have to be an expert gardener, just interested in growing and happy to support others to get involved. Ideally you’ll be a Golding resident yourself, if not, you’ll be committed to improving your local community. As a volunteer you will be encouraged to give your time promoting the programme and supporting others to have a go at growing. There will be ongoing support from a Project Officer with resources from national charity Garden Organic.
