to read that June was the wettest on record. Not only that but it was also the second dullest as well. Following on from the rainiest April it made the period from April to June the wettest recorded in the UK. There have been days when it’s felt autumnal.
I only went to the plot a couple of times last week. On Tuesday I chopped the comfrey down and added it to the compost heap. That meant that I could see and pick plenty of hidden raspberries.
The blackberry bush, by the compost bin, is full of flowers and was buzzing with bees.
It’s been my worst year yet, certainly as far as growing vegetables is concerned.
What has cheered me up has been the pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites, which I’ve mostly managed to keep on the flower patch this year.
There is the usual mix of varieties and colours.
The forecast for the coming week is dry but mainly cloudy and cool so I hope to get some plotting done most days.
Have a good week!
