was right and today is sunny and warm, with weekend temperatures set to reach 25C/77F. When it gets that warm, and the air pollution inevitably worsens, I go to the plot early.
This week I’ve hand-weeded all round the onions, which are doing well, and will do the same with the potatoes, where I noticed that a few of the second-early Charlottes have foliage appearing.
Plenty of annual flower seeds such as nasturtiums are now appearing, having self-seeded from last year. I’d rather have too many than too few as I can always hoe off or pull up any unwanted ones.
The alliums roseum that I planted last autumn now have flower stems on them. I’ve not not grown these before so it’ll be interesting to see what they’re like.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
