im a little worried my main crop spuds area gona block the sun reaching my peas...the spuds have shot up over the last week or so..i gave them a spray of bordeaux mixture over the weekend.

Ive made the same mistakes as last year with my tomato's..over fed them and now they have curley branches!! hopefully this will pass quickly with some extra watering..


I also have asparagus!!! i plated two really dry roots in october last year...and one has come alive..it might be flowering...i've no idea. will just have to wait and see.

Everything coming on nicely there NB!

I'd say the curly leaves on your tomatoes are the tomato plant reacting to too much heat? All mine done that last year in my greenhouse at home, the leaves curl up to avoid losing moisture apparently.

Glad you kept the post going NB, great pic's, your garden looks great. My Garden has taken-off too with the recent sunshine & warmth.

My Courgette's are nearly ready to start picking and I was thinking to have a go at frying the male flowers in batter Fiori di zucca fritti. Has anyone tried this, any recipies without cheese filling out there.

Not so much boring, but uninteresting. Belongs in a blog or on Facebook.

It's like a forum within a forum rather than a thread. Except there's no subject to let you decide without trawling thru' stuff. If it wasn't for:
http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=1059
... I'd be lost for such a resource.

It may have wandered off topic somewhat, but personally I find Nozebleed's garden updates really interesting (more interesting than a lot of other threads). Most regular visitors to the site know what to expect from this thread, so if you don't like it don't open it. I like to read about other peoples progress (good and bad) and it's interesting to compare their progress with my own. Rock-on Nozebleed!

Who doesn't need a little help with their greenhouse.

Leave the post alone.
