I’ve been busy plotting every day this week. I put the canes up then sowed the climbing beans – runner bean Red Rum, Climbing French beans Barlotto Lingua di Fuoco & Blue Lake. I sowed some sweetcorn Swift F1, and re-sowed beetroot Detroit 2 & Golden, carrots Early Nantes & Nanco, leaf beet Rainbow Chard, salad leaves Provencale Mixed and spring onion Ishikura.
Plot neighbour Trevor kindly gave me a cardoon. It doesn’t look much now but fully grown it should be rather impressive.
I’m well pleased to see that a nemophila maculata Five Spot has appeared on the plot for the first time as it’s a delightful flower.
I’m still sowing lots of nasturtiums and sunflowers here, there and everywhere.
