Pride and joy..

Hello guys and welcome back, thank you spending time read my blog and all subscription and your support is well appreciated. Today we back to gardening topic despite heat wave and extremely dry weather. I can only see reason for extreme weather due to global warming and other climate change. As you know I been on holiday and asked my father in law looking after my garden as he is keen gardener as well and also my next door neighbour was kind and water my garden while away. And I would like to thank both of them. Ok guys lets start... My pride and joy.....

I am starting with Ginger - As you remember from my previous blog when I planted ginger few weeks later and look.. Couple of shoots come out around half a meter tall in good health. Now I have to care for my pots almost for a year before harvesting freshly home gowned Ginger. Ginger is easy growing plant that likes moist, humid and hot weather. Once August pass I will move my pots back inside the house to protect plants from unexpected morning frost etc. Ginger doesn't like cool weather at all. How to plant ginger in to the pot see one of my planting blogs in few easy steps and you don't have to buy ginger ever again....

My next stop are Peppers... I am so happy from crop this year. I tried to grow Peppers last year but wasn't successful but this year I am having 5 healthy plants about half meter tall so far with 13 Peppers and more flowers appearing. This type of Pepper is (Long Red Marconi) long and when is ready dark ruby colour and sweet taste is present. Absolutely fabulous for summer salads, cooking or I just like eat Peppers raw straight from plant. I ordered seeds from eBay and got many left for next year. If you fancy Peppers seedlings next year let me know thru website. Don't know how to grow from seeds?? Visit my YouTube channel to have a look how to grow peppers from seeds as tip for next year season.

Next stop and one of the must grow - Tomatoes, is nothing more tastier then freshly harvested home grow Tomatoes full of flavour great for salads, cooking, preserving and also freezing. This variety is Moneymaker variety (Solanum lycopersicum) I grow this variety in pots and got 5 heathy plants with around 30 tomatoes hanging all over. I grow my tomatoes from seeds and they are now 1 meter tall heathy with no black mould or insects. I will be growing this variety also next year if you like seedlings let me know thru my website for more info. Ok lets move to another pride.
