I’ve now nearly finished planting and sowing all the flowers and vegetables that I’m growing this year.
At home there are two cucumbers Bush Crop (see left) and Double Yield which I will plant out in a couple of weeks or so. I was given the seed of these less common varieties to try and it’ll be interesting to see how they do.
I’ve still got some more climbing bean seeds to sow which I’ll do once the first ones appear.
The first broad beans Crimson Flowered are just about knee high but are now flowering.
I sowed some more this week, and I wonder how they’ll do as I’ve never sown any this late before.
The plot has been buzzing with bees this week which is always good to see.
They’re been on the comfrey (as seen here), raspberries, strawberries and carpet of poached egg plant flowers. I recognise honey bees but taking a closer there are various different types including lots of the white-tailed bumblebees.
It’s been a mostly sunny and warm week, and set to get even warmer for a few days, so this morning I went early and met Foxy who came right up to the full watering can on the ground in front of me. I will mostly be pottering and watering whilst it’s that warm and leave the grass cutting until it cools down a bit.
Have a good weekend!
