Last Day of September


Well it's the last day of September, and what a quick month that seemed to be. 

It's also I think, the last jug full of Sweet peas from the Veggie Patch.   I only planted them to attract the bees to pollinate the French and Runner beans which have both fizzled out and done terribly this year.  The Sweet Peas however, have done brilliantly well, my best Sweet Pea display ever, bringing colour and a glorious scent to the hillside and the house over and over again. The more you pick the more you get!!


Shopping with Mum last week saw me spending another bit of my Flower Show winnings on more packets of seeds.  They were being sold off at 50p a pack at the garden centre, so that's another £3 spent.

Well roll on October, let's see what you have in store for us, is all I have to say now :-)

    2. It's been gone for 3 days here in US. Plus, your "no spend" blog has disappeared. I love that one as much as this one!!

  3. I have never grown sweet peas, but they look very pretty so I might have a go at growing some next year. We didn't have any success with our runner beans either, but our bush beans did amazingly well!

  4. I had the last of my sweet peas a couple of weeks ago. I have pulled them all up now along with my runner beans and sunflowers. There is always a sense of sadness when they are over and I pull them up (and it looks bare in the veggie patch). But the seasons come and the seasons go and now we find ourselves in the last day of September - already!! Like they say "Tide and Time wait for no man" - or woman. Regards, Louise S, Cheshire.

  5. With all these seeds you're getting, there'll be plenty for you to do next year.

    1. All the blogs that are usually listed in my sidebar seem to have vanished for the moment. You can still get to any of them by typing the address into your search bar or by Googling the name. The blogs themselves haven't vanished ... thank goodness ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Love the scent - and the colour - of sweet peas and am so envious of that jug they are in.
