So far this week I’ve only been to the plot once but it was well worthwhile. Unlike the other days Tuesday was dry and sunny so I lifted more onions and potatoes, picked plenty of beans and some blackberries and raspberries along with a couple of cucumbers, a sweet corn cob, the first few tomatoes and the last rhubarb stems. I was going to cut some sunflowers but they were buzzing with bees so left them for another day.
Last Sunday I was given three pelargoniums, one each pink/white, red and white in small pots and looking rather sorry for themselves.
I removed several dead leaves and re-potted them. They’re now looking much better, and all three are flowering.
A few weeks ago the two tomatoes Tiny Tim on the windowsill had lots of flowers but I neglected to water them as often as I should have done so most died and dropped off rather than form fruit. I’m annoyed with myself about this as I had high hopes for these this year. As it is there are still a few flowers and one tiny fruit is now forming.
Have a good weekend!
