Today, I am going to give you a new garden update. Let’s see what is happening!
Last week, the sun was shining, the whole week & it did wonderful things to my plants. Outside, on the street it was only 16°C & but in my walled garden it was 22°C. All of my garden plants & container plants grew bigger each day but this week, it has rained all week & all days long so I put my container plants inside my house, directly close by the stove & gave them much light & lots of love & caring of course! ;)
Outside in the sunshine:
My fig tree is producing already bigger figs, but they are still unripe. This is very early this year, but maybe because we have had a very mild Winter with no snow at all & with higher temperatures as normal. I will keep you all posted when they will be ripe. Normally, they are ripe in August-September! ;)
Inside in the house, when it is raining, all day, all week:
Here is my larger Pea-collection. I have grown this peas, the low-sort, named Kalife-peas for the very 1st time from scratch, from seeds. This is a sort of pea plant, that grows, maximum 60 cm high so it is great for growing into pots. I have sewn them on March, the 9th & some of them are already producing big pea pods. I started out with 20 mini plants & 5 didn’t survive at all. I learned everything from the web & from you-tube, gardening in containers. Normally, I put them outside in the morning sun & then, they go after glass for the rest of the day. Most of them do very well. Next year, I will put them, more closer together in even bigger pots & I will grow even more plants. They were grown from seed to edible pods in only 2 months time. They are great to grow early in Spring because they can’t stand too hot weather. You can grow them again in late August or in September.
I have also peas in the pods that still need lots of growing! Early stages yet! I will keep you all posted, okay?
I need to put it outside when the flowers will be opening but it is raining all week, non-stop, sigh! Otherwise, I will need to hand-pollinate them too! :)
So, I hope you enjoyed reading it all & see you all later, back in my container & normal garden! See you! :)
