Garden Veggies Update

Our garden veggies are doing well.
Before we started “Coco & Silky veggie farm” we didn’t know how they grow.  Knowing about it is very intriguing, isn’t it, daddy?

Did you know that potato flowers are this beautiful?

うちの庭は小さいのでプランターや鉢植えで野菜を育ててますが、みんな元気にすくすく成長してます。これはジャガイモの花。こんなにキレイなんて知らなかった。

Then, a couple of weeks after seeing this beauty we harvested these lovely looking Charlotte potatoes.

で、この花を見てすこししてからこれだけのジャガイモを収穫。これはシャーロット種です。

Can you guess how many French beans we’ve got?
We sowed only a few seeds and yet the number of the French beans we’ve harvested so far is a lot.
In the middle of this month, we got these.

インゲンはスゴイ。まず7月の初めにこれだけ収穫して、

Then, a couple of days ago, we got more.

数日前にまたこれだけ収穫。

Then then, this morning, we got more and there are still more to come.
By the way, last year’s crop had some dark marks but this year’s are all really perfectly beautiful.
Why did they get those marks last year?

そして今日、またまたこんなに。そしてまだまだ育ってます。食べきれなくて犬友にあげました。

Our sweet pepper babies started revealing their appearance.  At first it was like a little green bum in a white frilly skirt,

これはパプリカピーマン。最初はこんなんで、なんか白いスカートの中にある緑のお尻って感じでしたが、

but now you can see it will be a proper green sweet pepper.

The one thing we are wondering is that we bought mixed colour sweet peppers but they are all green at the moment.  Will they change their colour?

だんだんとそれらしくなってきました。色々な色の苗を買ったつもりがなぜかみな緑。これは育つウチに色が変わるそうです。

Our tomato babies are growing day by day, too.  I think these two have a little hint of red or not?

トマトもすくすく。この二つ、なんとなく赤い色が付いて来てるかなぁ?

Our Green pea plants didn’t produce many, however, this one which we’ve grown from one tiny seed is doing well.  It’s only one plant and small but there are more flowers to come.

グリーンピースはイマイチで、苗を二つ買ったけどカラカラになってきてちょっと収穫できただけ。このグリーンピースは種から育ててたった一つ生き残ったものですが、結構頑張ってます。

We harvested all our spinach so we sowed more seeds and they’ve started growing.
Everyone is happy and doing well, however…..

Our spring onions which had been almost dead recovered after having Japanese nana’s care. They are looking good but are covered with slug shine.
Hmmm…I wonder if mummy and daddy want to eat them?

Our garlic didn’t do well. We planted two garlic plants but one of them disappeared and the other is this.  It’s really tiny.  I wonder if it is edible?

と、こんな感じでみな頑張ってますが、にんにくはダメでした。苗二つ植えて一つ消滅で一つはこんなに小さいの。食べれるのかな。そしてヨレヨレだったスプリングオニオンは日本から来た母が手入れしてくれて復活。でもナメクジのテカテカが一杯でちょっと食べる気しない。

We planted sweet potatoes a few weeks ago.  They will be all ours, won’t they, Coco?
There are some spaces in the veggie planter so we will get something else to grow this weekend, won’t we, daddy?

Phew….it’s still hot today.  I finished blogging so I am going to have my lovely beauty nap-nap.
Zzzz…..Zzzz…..Zzzz….

OH MY WOOF!!  We are about to forget something important.

It’s mummy and daddy’s wedding anniversary today.
Happy anniversary, mummy and daddy.

Oh dear….we have to cook something special.   What can we do?
Hold on???
They went out to have feast yesterday without us so it has to be something healthy and small, otherwise daddy will be Humpty Dumpty, won’t he?
Green salad, it is, then!

で、忘れるところで市が、7月21日は結婚記念日。特に何もしませんが、Cocoとシルキーが私のお気に入りのきれいなカラリリーの前で記念のポーズ。収穫が済んで空いてるプランターがあるから、週末はガーデンセンターに行こう!

Love Coco and Silky with mummy and daddy’s favourite calla lily.
