this week having been dry, sunny and reasonably warm, especially today, after a chilly start. I’ve planted out the two lots of daffodils, dug up the gladioli and taken down one lot of climbing bean canes.
You would have thought it was summer this morning as there was plenty of colour with the summer annual flowers and I picked yet more runner beans and tomatoes but the dogwood ( top left in the picture) is telling a different story as the leaves are going red prior to dropping. Another hint of autumn are the numerous red hips on the dog rose.
I’ve started thinking about next year with what vegetables to grow, where and in what quantities. I’ve no doubt that my preliminary list will change a few times over the coming months. The broad beans didn’t do well again this year so I probably won’t grow them next year and use the space to try some beans dwarf French Borlotto Di Vigevano Nano instead.
It looks like the good weather is set to continue dry and sunny, but a touch cooler, to end the month.
Have a good weekend!
