I spent three mornings plotting during the week when I lifted the first of the Charlotte salad potatoes which looked, and tasted, really good. I’m still picking lots of broad beans and tried the first of the blackberries which, although they weren’t sharp, really needed just a few days.
I picked some sweet peas, mostly Kings High Scent along with a few Spenser Choice Mix Colours. They’re in a coffee mug which I’m using as a vase.
I deadheaded the pot marigolds, which took a while, and collected some seed from the collomia graniflora. The crocosmia will be starting to flower next week and the first of the gladioli won’t be long either.
As you can see Nikki’s cat Em has the right idea as she’s not only a lawn lounger but a book buff as well!
