The rose bed that I planted a couple of months ago is coming along nicely. I planted 3 different sorts, a red Rose (Montana
), a yellow rose (Friesia) and an amber rose (Amber Queen – see above photo). They all should grow to an approx height of 80cm but wont reach that height this season. We chose rose types that are hardy and relatively disease resistant and so far we haven’t had any problems.
I am currently extending the Juniorettes veggie bed and plan to plant a bit more hedging in the Autumn. Vegetable wise we are enjoying the first of the ripe sweet peppers and aubergines, as well as having stacks of cucumbers. The tomatoes this season have not been as successful as other years due to the crap weather we have had this summer. But it’s all swings and roundabouts as I haven’t had to water the garden so often.
The Juniorette starts back to school tomorrow. She is looking forward to it, but she will have problems getting up early in the morning again. The footy season has kicked off again here in Germany. Unfortunately Werder Bremen have not made a good start, but its early days yet, and yesterday we went to watch a Frauen Fussball match. Local team RSV Rossdorf beat FC Mittelbruchen 6-0 in the Hessen Oberliga. It was a good game and we very much enjoyed it.
