In the Garden

Welcome to my new follower Nil.

I don't know what the weather is like where you are but here it is feeling rather Autumnal, the temperatures have dropped we have had plenty of rain, the water barrels are all full. In the garden there are quite a few bare patches where some of the summer bedding has died off. But there is still plenty going on, summers not over yet.

 The apples are looking good.

Pink poppies have just appeared under the tree.

The bees are working hard.

The raspberries are delicious.

At last the tomatoes are ripening.

Pots of tasty salad leaves everywhere.

The neighbours tree full of Damsons, wish this tree was in our garden.

My new wind chime, I just love the sound.

We have eaten the first of our potatoes they were so nice, we just dig a few out when we want them.

We even had some which sprouted out the side of the compost bin.

Bay Tree cuttings potted using free homemade compost, growing ready to take to the car boot sale.

Lovely homemade compost, much better than the stuff we sometimes buy.

I love seeing Marlene, she always gives me lovely juicy sultanas, I am a very spoilt Blackbird.

Some decking offcuts picked up from Freecycle.

My husband made some lovely planters out of it.

The peppers are very slow this year.

As always we have had plenty of courgettes, yesterday I made a soup using courgettes, potatoes, onions, garlic and fresh herbs and there was also some cooked leftover veg in the fridge so I threw that in as well.

Soup for tea tonight and some for the freezer.

Soup made for very little

Bye for now ......
