The advanced gardening thread

Just took em up today mate. They turned out ok


#242

Have an epic yield of chilis from three potted plants. Dried a good few of them yesterday and ground them for my own home made chilli powder. It’s explosively hot


#243

Note for next year, only set one Courgette and one cucumber plant. I’m over run with the fuckers.


#244

The raspberries fruited early. There won’t be the yield there was in other years but the flavour is extraordinary. The olive trees are flowering which never happened before


#245

My Loganberries are just ripening now, haven’t tasted one yet.


#246

How are you faring out with the hosepipe ban?


#247

My broccoli is after bolting.

Distraught.


#248

Once they start, there’s no stopping them.


#249

I’ve taken to making courgette and cucumber pickles


#250

Could you play hide and seek in there?


#251

You can cook the courgette flowers, that will slow down the cunts.


#252

I’ve seen that done but haven’t tried it, do you dip them in a batter and quickly deep fry them?


#253

yes, you can stuff them and deep fry them. Ricotta cheese and herbs is lovely. A bit of a pain in the arse though, you could throw them into a salad or pan fry them also.


#254

The berries are fucked from the lack of rain. Gooseberries and black currants all shriveled up. Seems to be a decent crop of plums.

Had my first tomatoe from the tunnel yesterday, a small cherry one, unreal.


Fodder Crisis
#255

Long term it’ll do the yield a power of good - the bushes will fruit like fuck for a few years to ensure their legacy.

#259

Whitewash the wall


#260
