I’ve now put the climbing bean canes up and sown the first lot of French beans, and also sown two short rows of dwarf ones.
The past couple of years I’ve bought sweet corn plants at the horticultural society plant sale but this year I’m sowing seeds direct instead. I’ve sown a block of nine with the variety Incredible, then once they’re showing and growing I’ll sow another block of nine.
Most of the various plants I had at home I’ve now taken to the plot and will plant out during the week. I’ll also be sowing lots of flower seeds. This morning I rough cut all round the outer grass paths, and will do the three inner ones through the week.
The rose Pretty Lady is late flowering this year but I think it will start in a day or two. It surprises me to see how red the petals are in bud but open up pink.
I’ve now been doing this blog for 14 years and this is the 1599th post. All the pictures of mine that I’ve shown here have been taken with the same camera, a Nikon Coolpix 3200 I bought in 2004. My thanks to everyone who stops by to read my posts, and look at the pictures, and especially to those of you who also comment.
Take care, and have a good week.
