I was busy plotting last week I’m glad to say! The weather has been sunny and comfortably warm so I’ve done a lot of much needed, and overdue, weeding.
I’ve also started clearing the areas where I’m going to plant my rhubarb, courtesy of Joe, and next year’s potatoes.
Just about the only flowers still to be seen are a few sunflowers,and this one double zinnia!
I also collected seeds from various flowers including aquilegias (columbines), pot marigolds,love-in a-mist, nasturtiums and sweet peas. More about these another time when I’ve sorted them all out.
At the hut last week I bought 20 mini daffodils, of several varieties, and 20 white (I think, indeed hope!) crocus all of which I’ll be planting in the long planter that, thanks to Fox Digger, has stood empty since the spring. The larger daffodils that were in it I’m planting out on the plot.
I also bought three hyacinth bulbs for growing indoors, hopefully to flower at Christmas. They’re the variety City of Harlem which as you see are pale yellow and very fragrant. I’ve been reading up what to do and will let you know how I get on!
