I’ve had another good week…

plotting, again doing all I wanted to do including hoeing, weeding and rough-cutting the grass path edges all round.

It’s always good to see the poached egg plant (limnanthes douglasii) flowers, and  I sowed some more recently, including the all white variety Meringue.

There are lots of buds on the rose Pretty Lady so it won’t be long before it starts flowering.

I’m growing the beetroot Baby Beat as I did last year.  They seem to takes ages to germinate and grow even though this particular variety gets no bigger than a golf ball.

After a couple of breezy and cooler days the weather looks set to get warmer again over the weekend and into next week rising to the low 20’s C (low 70’s F) with night temperatures staying in double figures centigrade .  That means I’ll be taking the tomatoes, cosmos and sunflowers that I’ve grown in pots at home to the plot to harden off for a few days before planting them out.  I’ll also be sowing the first lot of climbing French and runner beans in the next few days, with a second lot following a week or so into June.

Have a good weekend!

    The poached egg plant is aptly named and quite fresh to look at. Your mini beetroots must be all the sweeter for their slow growth and development. Pleased to hear you got everything done that you wanted done. Xxx

    The weather has been much cooler here too, I’m looking forward to it warming up again at the weekend. I’m glad to hear you’re on top of everything at the plot, it makes a change to have some fine weather and be able to get on with things instead of playing catch up all the time. It looks like it’s going to be another good year for Pretty Lady.

    White poached egg plants? How lovely! I love beetroot seedlings, three always come up per seed and I always try to save the lot! One fine day I’ll have to get over myself and thin out!xxx
