I have to admit I am a reluctant gardener, the missus is the real star behind our produce, but she is usually too busy working in the garden to write on TLF!

So far this year we have eaten our own peas and runner beans, blackberries, cherries, carrots (from last year), sour cherries (for wine), lettuce and herbs, apricots and peaches are just about ready.

No, but we have grown many things in buckets and find that they need too much water in the hot months and are too susceptible to cold in the winter. Currently I have 27 horse chestnuts in 'buckets' to be planted out in autumn, will add photos soon. they were a 'lockdown' project, one a day.

Thanks J
Yes we had a house on the site a little way down from the ampthitheatre (crenellated battlement houses) (Iren sitesi). We have travelled much in Turkey and we chose our favourite area. the climate is amazing here.

Re: Growing your own

Lots of rhubarb is grown in buckets on allotments but you usually knock the bottoms out of the buckets then plant the rhubarb in them.

Re: Growing your own

This is my take on gardening, a bit off topic maybe:

From the age of 12 (ish) I had to help my dad every Sat as he was a part time gardener at a cathedral, this was to earn my 10 shillings pocket money. He grew everything from seed and cultivated the flowers for the alter and also the veg for the housekeepers.

I hated it! ......... Mowing lawns, weeding hundreds of yards of borders, pricking out seeds in to trays and transplanting in to borders and dead heading hundreds & hundreds of Livingston daisy flower heads.
In the autumn rake up the dead tree leaves. Then lift the dahlia tubers and store them.
When dad was night shift I had to travel 6 miles to stoke the boiler over winter for the greenhouse.

I HATED GARDENING..

Then in my 20s had my own house and started growing stuff, some veg and roses.I must have retained some knowledge as I just knew what to do and everything was successful.Early 40s grew all kinds of veg but got disillusioned as my wife would walk past it and buy from the supermarket so all my stuff ended up in compost.

The mid life crisis ...got a motorbike and turned most of garden to lawn as the bike won and was more fun.

Now in my 60s sold bike moved house and decided to have a few planters to grow just a few veg, foiled again as wife wanted flowers. So now just some garden peas, lettuce, chives & parsley. And an apple tree.

I think those early days taught me a lot as it is very rare to have a failure when I grow anything.

Re: Growing your own

In our area you can only rarely find fresh coriander. that is something that we need to plant regularly as it soon bolts in the summer. We are up to 120 kg of vişne so far this year, another 3 trees to pick tomorrow, we are having help from a chap in the village tomorrow, I don't really do ladders.

Re: Growing your own

Hazel nuts today, almonds are ready too. Best to visit the hazel tree at different times of the day, it is easier to see the ones you missed as the light intensity changes. Tip, test your almonds before picking them to see if the tree is sweet or bitter. In our first year here we mixed the bl00dy lot and ruined them! You cannot tell from the colour of the blossom.

Re: Growing your own

If you are planning on picking tomatoes water them in the morning then pick in the afternoon.

Re: Growing your own

Linseys dad was trying to grow some of his own in the back garden when he came across 4 or 5 of these, I have heard of bonemeal fertiliser but this was a little over the top.
