Promise

There is promise in my garden.



The promise of a salad picked minutes before it is eaten. (VERY slow growing. 3 weeks it said on the packet! I don't think so!)



The promise of an Apple crumble - but not for a while yet.

Strawberries in time for Wimbledon week?


And peas picked and eaten straight from the pod.

Can't wait.


And yes - the wine corks are keeping the slugs at bay! Link added for those with memory probs!!!

Will have to give the wine corks a go. Slugs/snails here having a nightly banquet.

It certainly does look promising!! There's nothing quite like picking your own food is there, in fact we've been doing a bit of that here this last week or two and very enjoyable it is too!

By the way, Im also a bit confused about the wine cork/slug thing, whats it all about, please share as we have an utter slug fest going on here at the moment!

Love Julia x x x

Strawberries a wee bit further forward down south here. Haven't heard of using corks for slugs. We have serious amounts of slugs and snails. :O(

I bet those starwberries will be lush with lashings of cream, a Pimms and the tennis on the TV.
