to the plot over the past few days was on Friday morning as it’s been mostly damp and dull, with heavy rain at times.
Nearly all the potatoes are now showing and I’ve already earthed up the first earlies Pentland Javelin a couple of times.
I’ll be keeping a close eye on the weather forecast and if there’s the slightest likelihood of any frost overnight I’ll be covering them.
The strawberry plants are doing really well, and have plenty of flowers on them, mostly partly hidden by the leaves.
I’m glad that I didn’t pull up and compost all the poached egg plants (limnanthes douglasii) a few weeks ago, as I thought about doing and mentioned here, as the ones I left are now flowering!
I’m pleased to see that there are also some of the all white variety Meringue which has smaller flowers. I’ll try to get a photo next time I’m there.
With plenty of rain and warmer weather everything is growing well, including the weeds so I’ll be doing plenty of hoeing and weeding next week once it’s drier. I also hope to make a start on sowing various flower and vegetable seeds.
Take care, and have a good week!
