Watching things growing ...

It's been a while since I wrote about things we've been doing. Lots of things going on, lots of things to share so hopefully I will try and catch up a little over the next few days.

First, I'm going to share a lovely poem I like

The Little Plant
In the heart of a seed
Buried deep, so deep
A tiny plant
Lay fast asleep.

"Wake", said the sunshine,
"And creep to the light".
"Wake" said the voice
Of the rainbows bright.

The little plant heard
And it rose to see,
What the wonderful.
Outside World might be.

Just reading that myself, warms my heart and puts a smile on my face. The sun is shining outside and it's going to be a nice day today.

Lots of time is needed now tending the seedlings and planting more seeds, it doesn't stop really from now until harvesting time. Even then it doesn't stop as there are plants to overwinter and things to still grow and crop as we live in a mild area.

So for now, here are just a few of the things growing here

The almond tree blossom

The chili plant on the windowsill

Melon seedlings

Tomato seedlings
(these really need planting on now)


  1. what a lovely poem , your chilli plant looks great too x

  2. What a lovely simple poem. I am going to copy it out and read it to James. Great to see what's growing down your way.

  3. Love the poem
    Love seeing photos of things growing ;0)


Don't be shy, come and say hello. Your thoughts are always appreciated, I read them all and will endeavour to respond. Thank you x
