The foliage on most of the second early, or salad, potatoes Charlotte has now died right back so this morning I had a firkle (or furtle if you prefer) around one plant and was pleased to find these good looking, and sized, tubers along with plenty of others that were smaller.
I didn’t grow many broad beans Witkiem Manita, and at one stage nearly gave up on them. I’m glad that I didn’t as there are now plenty of large pods each containing a handful of good sized beans.
All the sweetcorn seeds germinated except one, one is noticeably small and another has been nibbled but the rest are doing okay. The dwarf French beans and runner beans are all growing well. This is the courgette plant that I was given.
There are still plenty of Small Tortoiseshell butterflies around
I’ve also seen some Small Skippers like this.
I’ve only seen one or two white butterflies, but they’ve been been very fluttery so I’ve not managed to take any photos of one yet.
Here’s another of the pot marigolds. This time it’s an almost dusky pink coloured one.
Lastly Twitter friend Debs (@girlontheplot) very kindly nominated me for a Versatile Blogger award in her blog post last week, and in turn I will do a post about it sometime soon.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
