Gardening Floyd: Inspiration

Sigh.  It's raining again.  I was supposed to be going to the community garden to help with staking out beds so when the tiller arrives he'll know exactly what needs done, but it's pouring.  We could have done it in drizzle or a light rain, but no.  It's windy, whippy raining.  I need some inspiration.  Maybe you do too.  Here's some photos of our garden from last year.
Scarlet Nasturtiums, Alibi Cucumbers, Currant Tomatoes

Alibi Cuke for gherkins and cornichons
Brown Turkey Figs
Zavory Peppers, Snack Face Pumpkins, Musk Melons, Brown Turkey Fig, Mints
Leaf Lettuce, Spinach, Swiss Chard, English Peas
Giant Marconi Pepper
Scarlet Runner Beans
Amish Paste, Principe Borghese, Smokie Tomatoes
Gold Beets, Turnips, Savoy Cabbage, Kohlrabi, Broccoli, Bush Peas

  1. Never mind rebecca, I'm sure from the look of those photos that you will have some rain eventually this year too. Unusually for England we seem to be having an unseasonally warm and dry spring, we could really do with a good shower of rain (now i've said that it'll probably never stop....)Kathy

  2. Hi Kathy! Actually we're suffering from too much rain! There's more forecast, the ground's soggy, we can't till or plant. I'm an impatient gardener this time of year!
