G is for Goodness Me
It's Friday again and I'm late in posting my Alphabet letter. I've just settled down to read some blogs and Cathy has posted her G contribution. Oh Goodness me, mine should be up and ready. Go to the Filofax (just thought I'd drop that name in) and look and see what I thought of for the letter G.
G is for Garden
Of course, it's just the right time to talk about the garden. Well, we've eaten the asparagus, all that we're going to eat anyway (cutting time is from April to June) and now we're starting on the mange-tout. It was a mass of white flowers last week and these are gradually changing into small pods. The first ones we pick are eaten raw and today I put some in a chicken casserole. My strawberries are now forming - better late than never - and a few lettuce have survived the marauding snails.
Unfortunately we started the tomatoes, calabrese, courgettes, corn and peppers in some dreadful compost that has stunted growth considerably. I've had to buy in other tomato plants but they are not coping well either. The corn plants were planted out and are still only quite small and the courgettes which should be romping away are only tiny.
It's great that the runner and French beans were planted directly into the garden soil. They are growing well thank goodness.
