Mistaken Identity

Yesterday I  found these on the tomato plants in the mini greenhouse in the garden.  They are Gardener's Delight and the first two to ripen.   They were delicious so I'm hoping for many more to come ..... 


A few weeks ago G sowed a variety of seed in little pots and brought them on in the garden shed.  He planted the resulting seedlings in the flower pots to improve the flower display for the Summer.  Now what do they look like?.....




Yes, they are CELERY. G made the fatal mistake of not labelling the pots so the flowers have been planted at the allotment and we have some very happy celery in the flower pots...lol...  Hopefully, close proximity to the flowers in the pot will blanch them because light can't get in easily. Watch this space :).......



It's warm and sunny today so I have stripped the single bed,  washed, dried AND ironed the linen and it's still not yet 3pm!  Lunch was a ready meal so no effort involved there, and we are shortly off to see DD for a BBQ in the garden.  We will still stay well apart even though we are in their 'bubble' until G has done the Covid test and got a clear result.  It's not worth taking any risks however small they may be.

Enjoy your day everyone and stay safe wherever in the world you happen to be x

  1. The celery mix did make me chuckle. It has certainly provided some lovely colour to the pots and you can pick your own stick from time to time.🤣

  6. That celery looks amazing! I tried growing some, but it didn't make it. The rhubarb has been prolific, though. They seem to be in the same family. Glad you were able to enjoy time with your family.

    1. I do miss them, MM, going from seeing them regularly to waiting months wasn't much fun. Hope you get to see yours very soon.

  9. Some of my best and mildest tasting celery has been grown amongst other plants, and as you say it will self blanch being surrounded as it is by all the flowers ... the allotment will be looking pretty too with extra flowers amongst the vegetables :-)
