Six on Saturday – My First!

I have long enjoyed Murtagh’s Meadows Six on Saturday posts – so, earlier this week, while standing in the back door, sheltering from a rain and hail downpour and taking photos, it dawned on me that I may well do a SoS post of my own… my very first! However, I wanted to find the rules first and went to The Propagator’s R&R’s – a post that explains the whole concept!

I’m rather glad I did… because now I know I don’t only have to do plants and or/ veggies… I can do other garden projects too! In hindsight… pity I didn’t visit here much earlier… there were quite a few small projects completed in the back garden this year! OK, so… one of the “rules” is to minimise the “verbiage”… therefore I will move rapidly on… but only after saying thanks to both the folk mentioned above!

I’m gonna begin with a very special photo… our holloween pumpkins… as produced by great-grandad! Yep – you read me right! Great-grandad found seeds I’d left neglected outside – he planted a few and this one vine produced the three lovely fruits! That’s GGD’s little patch – and OH, GGD is a full NINETY!!

Next – onto a few of the “rain and hail” shots. The white blobs are said liquid splodges… and yes, the sun was shining…

Wet lettuce!

The “winter leek experiment”… yep, loads of experiments this year… it was mostly about learning and getting better prepared for next spring!

And… a bit of colour… the last of the gladioli – against the back fence…

Last but not least… a longing look at the colours of autumn upon us… GGD’s pumpkin casting a shadow on the past year…

If you like this #SixOnSaturday post, do visit the links above and even take part! I think I will be sharing more of these Saturday treats!

    Thanks for ping back and great to see you getting in on Six on Saturday. I am also very jealous of your pumpkins as you will see mine is tiny. The sunny east has obviously had a lot more sun this year than our wet and cool west!

      👍😀 I think we were just lucky… the results may be due to the location… got early morning summer sunshine for an hour or two and then most of the afternoon sun against the wall… suntrap! We really didn’t have a great summer either but the warm September caused a growth spurt! 😁😁

    You’ll find Six on Saturday is a lot of fun! Nice pumpkins. I had such a terrible squash bug infestation last year I didn’t plant any this year to discourage them. No gourds or cucumbers, or any kind of squash. So, my harvest display is non-existent!

    Welcome to SOS..a fun way to share, and keep track over the year of goings on in the garden. Looks like GGD has much to share with the rest of us too.
