Melons ~ Peppers and other things

The Greenhouse in Lyn's territory ~ it is her Haven ~ and she just loves to spend time in there ~ she is learning about plants and enjoying doing so ~

Do you remember all the bunches of grapes I got last year ~ well it looks like we are going to have a good crop this year as well ~

Colin from the Gardening page told us how to prune them ~ and it really is looking good ~ "Thanks Colin"

The Woodpecker that comes to feed on the peanuts has been there nearly all day ~ he seems to be getting used to me opening the window and trying and take his picture ~ but the Green one is more elusive it takes off at the slightest noise ~

hopefully he will get used to me as well so I will be able to get a picture of him too ~ he is really a handsome bird ~

Last year we had tomato's cucumbers and lettuces for weeks and they are so much nicer when you have grown them yourself ~

Hi Ally,  Well done to Lynn and her green fingers.  It sounds as though you`ll have some lovely grapes soon.  I agree, fresh produce has far more flavour than shop bought.  Who knows how long it`s been stored by the time we get it. :0)

there is something that makes home grown veggies or flwers better than the store bought ones..
everything looks great!!

Never mind the veggies, when's the wine going to be ready? I like red best ;O)

faveanti said...

Red wine's my favourite too Ally, but I' would be no good for trampling grapes because people would complain about me corn plasters!
The photos never come through for me.  Do I need something in particular to view them? Love, Angie

All those home grown things sound lovely and I bet they taste so much better than shop bought. Love Joan.

Had a lot of bother trying to get to see your photos worth waiting for super pictures of Great Spotted Woodpecker you were so lucky to get these shots. Love joan.
