Welcome, Updates and the back garden

First of all, welcome to Lindsey E Martin via Bloglovin. Essexgran, please send your address so I can post you your Sunbonnet Sue book!

I have just updated the menu tab with 2 weeks worth of meals. The War Diary tab for October has also been added for anyone who is interested!

Our blueberries bushes have gone a beautiful colour:

They were recently moved from the garage wall to the other side of the fruit cage to give the blackberry more room to grow and fruit. Everything seems to have more room now. Both rhubarbs and one gooseberry were also moved:
Despite our leek seedlings being poor to say the least, one or two have improved in size so we should get something, even if they will be baby leeks:

  1. Autumn is a wonderful time of year for plants to show their colours isn't it, your fruit bushes look amazing. Your leeks look good too, they will keep growing now they are so established. Mine have taken an age to come through but at last leeks planted last August (2014) have finally started to put on some growth and be almost of a size to eat.

    1. From last year! Gosh, didn't realise some could take that long. These were sown in June but once through just stayed like thin blades of grass.

  2. Goodness how long do leeks take to grow? Im shocked thst Sues are over a year old. planted some in June and they're probably the size of yours with a few fat ones here and there.

    1. Normally I buy them in, pencil thick and they grow quite quickly but the variety I have been buying is subject to leek rust (Musselburgh), so I no longer grow them. Instead I grew these (Bandit) from seed, so maybe that is why they are so slow.

  3. Gosh, no idea about the leeks, but I hope they grow soon for you! xx
