Plenty to be done in the garden and the greenhouse but that forecast for later in the week is rather daunting!
A bit of a mixture, so I will get started.
Here is my Six-on-Saturday for this week.
Not very good lighting but a very healthy Spider Plant. This has been going for many years. I think the original has long gone but dozens of it’s “babies” have been passed around friends and family. I have mixed feelings about it. It is not a thing of beauty but stays green and undemanding through all seasons.
I don’t know whether you may remember a few weeks ago I posted a photo of the strange leaves on a new houseplant. Well, this is how it has progressed. The new leaves are definitely forming at the tip of the old leaf. (Another case of poor lighting, but I think it is clear enough to see what is happening.)
No, it’s not a jar of something suspicious from the garden, just the last of the very tasty Green Tomato Chutney 😥. It has been a big success!😁 Unfortunately, or fortunately from my point of view, Granny’sGardenHimIndoors doesn’t really like chutney so I have had to eat it all myself! Apart from making the whole house smell of vinegar for a few hours, it was very easy to make.
The last of the Brussels!! That giant one in the middle is a Brussel top. Four plants have yielded dozens of portions.
The trough of irises, I think, but no sign of buds, yet.
Garden implement of the week.
A mini dibber which saves getting the fingers and fingernails messy. Excellent for pricking out seedlings – a present from my son’s kind in-laws, along with a larger dibber. They have both been well used!
No exciting colours, this week but there is always something of interest out there.
Looking forward to seeing your Sixes-on-Saturday.
