The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Produce Progress!

Meanwhile, our little vegetable patch is looking pretty good with one exception..! Someone is eating the runner beans and I suspect slugs are helping themselves. After the world's wettest winter they are EVERYWHERE and in plague proportions! The Genever lettuces have done well, beetroot, carrot and peas are all up and today the Genever outdoor tomato plants were planted - on the end of the Chrysanths!  PTC has never had outdoor varieties before so it should be interesting.  The indoor plants are doing OK although numbers of trusses may be fewer.
