Kitchen Garden – May update is looking a little patchy

Its been just over a month since the last post. Back then we were basking in glorious presummer sun. Recently it has been more of a norm with reasonable sun but still cool at times.

 

This has been a challenge to monitor as the garden gets going. The result of which has show various areas with sparse seedlings.

Its not a major crises as the sucessful germinations will do for now. The last phot above is a new one for me. Its called Perilla (which I just googles as I only knew it by the korean name of 깻잎 (gaennip). Its an acquired taste, but since my wife is Korean I had to do a few plants. That also explains why I grow so many Chinese cabages (she makes loads of amazing Kimchi).

 

I still havent put in the cucumbers or courgettes as yet. We are to have a new garden fence soon so I have to wait a few more weeks for them.

 

 

The rest are looking quite established and happy in their positions. That cannot be said for the corn which got a scorching one day and havent looked that well since. That aslo included the chillies and tomatoes. More on their story another day.

 

The kids however are eagerly watching the starwberries. This has to be the best part about the garden as they now understand and appreciate that veg take time to grow, in comparison to the instant supermarkets.

I keep doing this but it wont take over a month till the next post.
