    Default What are you growing?

    I have a good range of curcubitae,

    nasturtiums & borage, which i never grew before

    Tayberries are my current favorite things though - soft fruits time!

    I've got a chilli plant from waitrose on the window sill I've managed to keep alive for a couple of weeks so far. Needs a lot of water.

    I've a small orchard in the front garden - 3 apple trees, 2 pears and one plum plus a load of lavender. The slate is arranged in whorls that I have to tidy up sometimes.

    Back garden has a pond with around 50 fish, dragonflies, pond skaters, frogs and a rat or two (I've been trapping them and setting them free on the Downs). There's a rockery with water pouring out of it into the pond. A trampoline, summerhouse and other garden trappings.

    The previous owner grew bonsai trees and was a bit handy, so there's a Japanese theme to everything.

    The neighbours keep chickens and bring around frogs they've found now and then. My mother in law delivered a rescued newt here last month, but it sank or dissolved, never seen it again. Herring gulls take our fish sometimes, less often now we have a dog. A big murder of crows lives in the wood nearby, hundreds of them, they're coming back to roost right now. There are skylarks on the rampion-strewn hill behind that

    It all beats the fire escape, billboard and burnt-out chippy i had for a back garden in Acton 20 years ago.
