too breezy and cool for much of the the past couple of months it’s also been too dry with very little rain. That has meant that the ground, which is clay, is beginning to show cracks like this .
It’s been a bad year for blackfly, and despite pinching the broad bean tops out then repeatedly spraying them it looks like I’ll be pulling them up to add to the compost heap.
I’ve been checking the runner beans daily and so far they’ve not been affected.
The chicory plants over by the log pile/wild flower area are now flowering.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
