grow bags

28 May 2010 00:03:15

Hi everyone

while shopping this morning in lidl i picked up 11 growbags at 1.75, what a bargin because they are alot more exsensive in other places i was delighted so i decided to ignore the docs and buttercups and start planting them up, I have strawberries and peppers i also put in 3 tomato plants but i dont think i will put any more in because they are not deep enough for the maturing plants, I have really small cherry tomatoes that i could put in them and use large pots for the bigger plants, they just looked so wrong in the growbags. i also done some sideshooting of the tomatoes, i done this very quickly because i  had to go and collect my daughter from camogie, will do a better job tomorrow. As you all have probarly notice i am not great for the photos, i will definately take pics of the finished work tomorrow, the growbags are a great invention, i ran out of space in the border in the tunnel so they are perfect,saves me diggin up the other side of the tunnel which would leave me with no space for staging. I know what i need, "Another tunnel", That would be great, All my veggies are doing fantastic.

In the new year i really will have to make a new years resolution to be more camera friendly, i never have the time to take photos, its all work work work. I am changing that this summer, ALL beds will be kept weed free with mypex and bark, no more big weeding and more time to enjoy it.

well thats it for now

happy gardening

p.s I will have pics tomorrow nite

Kitty you have been so busy this year and you will be able to enjoy your garden for the summer. Must get some grow bags for next year they seem to be a good idea,?
