and I’m well pleased with how I’m doing, and the plot is looking, at the moment.
Tuesday and yesterday I planted out the second early potatoes Charlotte, and this morning I planted the main crop variety Desiree. That’s another job ticked off the list.
There’s been no significant rain for about a month so last week and again today I did some watering, which I’ve never had to do this early before.
It won’t be long before the perennial cornflower (Centaurea montana) is flowering.
I was taking a photo of the red edged leaves of the rose Pretty Lady when I noticed this flower bud! In recent years it started blooming in mid-May but could well be even earlier this year.
If the weather warms up a bit and there’s no overnight frosts forecast I may start to sow some annual flowers next week.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
