with last week’s frosty nights making way for this week’s warm sunshine!
The beetroot, carrots, mixed leaf salad, radish and spring onions have all started growing. I’ve sown all the borlotti, French and runner beans as well as more flowers including four varieties of nasturtiums!
The teasels have self seeded, a couple of which I’ll let grow full size, and several gladioli have appeared above ground during the week.
Plot plant of the week, and which perfectly matches this glorious weather, is the poached egg plantI recently moved some that had self-seeded last year and this week they’ve been flowering profusely. I’ve also got them as my new header picture.
I caught a glimpse of a fox nearby during the week, and Joe told me that he’d disturbed one resting on the old carpet which covers George’s compost heap which is adjacent to the plot just across the grass path. A few small holes have been dug on plot as well so perhaps it’s Fox Digger! I’ll be a bit more forgiving if I get to see and photograph him.
