It’s just started raining…hooray. How often do we say that when rain descends but the garden really needs it and I need a break from all the watering. Last summer the window boxes looked dreadful, the annuals flopped to the ground in a mess and anything left was eaten by the slugs. This year with all the hot dry weather the slugs are still under their stones asleep – well- not all of them but definitely better than last year and the annuals are bright and beautiful.
My veg plot: runner beans, courgettes, sweet corn. kale, broad beans, peas, onion, garlic, parsnips, leeks, red cabbage, swede, carrots…think that’s all! The peas are brilliant this year. I hardly ever get the peas to the table as I eat so many whilst I’m gardening! Growing amongst the veg are cornflowers, sweet peas and calendula…looks pretty and they are supposed to entice the bees. Actually lots of birds and mice like the veg plot too!
Still raining so plenty of time to add another photo!
