  • His name was buggin me .....
    on Aug 15, 2010 in Friend or foe
    If you don't like creepy crawlies look away now. Ha ! you looked anyway and now you're shuddering at the thought of it sitting on your shoulder desperately trying to make it's way into your ear to burrow and nest and whisper !! But whatever you do, d...
  • " I collect heads you know "
    on Aug 11, 2010 in A tip.
    Collecting heads makes me sound like Ireland's answer to Ted Bundy, but although I did consider wearing one as a hat, this is where the similarity ends. Or does it ? This year I have quite a lot of sunflowers and most of them are of the branching typ...
  • Oh dry up !
    on Aug 8, 2010 in A tip.
    The shallot harvest was on me unexpectedly, these little critters were planted on the fourteenth of March and as can be seen from the photo below most of the leaves had fallen over and were dying back. I decided to pull them all and dry for storage.
  • When weeds attack !!
    on Aug 2, 2010 in Trials and tribulations
    Now I've been around a few gardening blogs lately and I must say my first impressions are always of awe and wonderment at how neat and tidy every ones garden appears to be. My first impressions are usually followed by envy, jealousy and lately, suspi...
  • Gravity defying carrots !!
    on Jul 18, 2010 in Veg growing. A touch of humour.
    A ha !! I can grow carrots after all ! Call it egotism, call it swagger, even call it vaunting. But here I am shamelessly showing off my carrots after my pride was badly injured as a consequence to the previous post. These lads were swiftly dispatche...
  • Disaster strikes.
    on Jul 10, 2010 in Trials and tribulations
    It can never be all plain sailing now can it and it's by our mistakes we learn right...... Ah balls !! I prefer the easy life as can be seen in my " relaxed " style of gardening. It all started back in late February when I decided to cheat and start...
  • The Dukes are coming to dinner.
    on Jul 10, 2010 in Potatoes
    There's something rewarding about growing your own potatoes, something that can't quite be explained. Maybe it's an inherently Irish thing to want to grow your own spuds, can it be traced back to famine times ? Maybe there's part of our psyche that d...
  • The first of the sunflowers.
    on Jul 6, 2010 in Flower growing.
    Of all the flowers in my garden it's the sunflower that captivates me the most. It's sheer dominance, not just in size but in radiance seems to draw the eye like a magnet and I cannot leave the house any morning without pausing to admire this years f...
  • Flower power.
    on Jul 4, 2010 in Flower growing.
    Here's a taste of whats blooming in my garden at the moment, the recent windy spell has played havoc with the taller flowers especially the cornflowers and the borage. I didn't stake them in time so the flowers pay the price !!" Blue boy " cornflower...
  • Back in the saddle !! ......
    on Jul 1, 2010 in Veg growing.
    ........ Well sort of anyway, life has taken a turn for the hectic and the last few weeks have zipped by almost unnoticed. Illness and weariness have taken their toll, accident proneness has brought new injuries to add to my almost broken body and at...
