The garden is a bit of a mess at the minute. I haven't done anything out there for months. There are strawberry runners everywhere, things to be pulled out, and as you can see from the front of the picture, a new pile of mystery plants given to me yesterday by Father.
Most of them are mystery plants, there are some bulbs, a pot of bare twigs, something quite bushy. There's something that may be a hellebore (please let it be so), a mock orange and a bushy thing that even I know to be a hebe. Clearing must be done in order to fit them in. Where they will go is anyone's guess. I have to clear the strawberry bed as Father had no success with his this year so I'm donating my runners to him - they love strawberries, I'm not that bothered and Dan can't eat them.
The garden is one of those things, I really want it to look nice, I really want to putter in it, but at the weekend Dan doesn't really want to do it and he won't sit out in the sun so it's a bit of a lonely job. He does enjoy the onions though!
As well as the mystery plants Father donated a bag of not at all mystery veg - two squash, leeks, a turnip, two small aubergines (I don't like them so Dan just went for two littlies) , a pile of chard and a couple of yellow courgettes. An amazing haul to end one month and start another. This should last us for a wee while and I'm looking forward to preparing it.
The leeks smell amazing, so they're on the list to be grown next time. I think chard could be a good bet too.
