Everything's coming up roses ! well fruit and veg at least ...

I only have a small back garden but like to plant things, especially stuff I can eat ! A couple of years ago I bought a small apple tree and got fruit the first year - this year it is full of baby apples which I hope will hang on as we are having strong winds here at the moment and I don't want to lose them 

I also have raspberries growing in the garden as well as a few flowering plants - this little garden gets lots of winds coming across so have to be careful what I plant and where ... at the moment I have bamboo growing on back and side fence to create some sort of wind break ..
I bought a small greenhouse a couple of years ago - just 6' x 6' which is all I had rooom for on my little patio ...


Inside the greenhouse I am growing tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers,beetroots,carrots and outside I have three tubs of potatoes coming up nicely, strawberries, blueberries and a goji berry bush which hasn't produced anything yet ... I also keep two compost bins in rotation and the one used last year provided alll the compost I needed for this year's pots etc ...
