|today's yellow-green sweet chilli pick|
- yellow-green chillies
In the meantime I wanted to document where the garden is now, so that when I come back in 2 months time I can see the growth. So here is a little tour of the garden at the end of March.
The broccoli patch is booming. The plants are bigger than they usually are at this time of year.
We are pretty vigilant with the green grubs but they are making a bit of a mess of the leaves. Today is a sunny hot day and so that is why they look a little limp.
I have some self seeded sunflowers that have popped up in the broccoli patch. Its pretty weird to have sunflowers at this time of year. They are starting to form their flowers (looking closely at the top of the pant I can see them forming). If they provide too much shade to the broccoli, the lad will pull them out.
|lettuce, thyme, chives|
You will have noticed that much of my current pick is lettuce, rocket and radish. Here is some of the lettuce in with the thyme and chives.
At the edge of the broccoli patch is a line of beetroot and parsley.

I still have two 'normal' chilli plants producing as well as the long cayenne. And many of my eggplant are still producing although the fruit is on the small side of things.
The lemon and limes have recently had a little pruning, especially the espaliered limes to make sure they are in shape.
So that is where things are at the moment. Bye by garden, I will miss you!
