Thanks to the weather staying dry I spent every morning last week working on the plot. On Monday I had to pull up the Gardener’s Delight tomatoes which had finally succumbed to blight. However as of yesterday the Golden Queen ones were still okay.
On Thursday and Friday mornings as I arrived at the site and was walking towards the plot I saw a parakeet chomping on one of the sunflowers. They’re rather skittish so there was no chance of taking a photograph before they flew off. I’m not the only one who see’s them on their plot as Sam mentions them in her post Parakeets and Seed Saving.
The dry weather looks set to continue through next week so one of the jobs that I’ll be doing is revamping the two planters.
There are a couple of asters still to flower, the purple one is just about to and will be followed in a few weeks by the white one.
Have a good week, and happy gardening!
