planting and sowing for this year. One cucumber and various tomatoes have now been planted out, and I’ve sown some more flower and vegetable seeds.
The oriental poppies have been amazing over the past week. This picture was taken yesterday when there were eighteen flowers.
There were bees buzzing all over them which was fascinating to watch. Sadly these flowers are short lived and by today one had already lost it’s petals. I intend cutting them right back as new foliage will grow fairly quickly and there should be some more flowers in a couple of months. I’ve not done this before so I’ll let you know what happens.
This morning I weeded all round the strawberry patch. I’d replanted twelve last autumn, and all but one are growing well. They are well spaced so I should be able to step between them without any problem, but as you can see I’ve let some pot marigolds grow around them!
Have a good weekend!
