and dull for a few days including all weekend so when I did go to the plot earlier in the week I wasn’t surprised to see that slugs and snails had eaten various plants including some of the climbing French beans and a few of the sunflowers.
The rose Pretty Lady had sadly shed virtually all the flower petals so I’ll have to get dead-heading.
Cosmos corner is looking a bit sparse at the moment but there are plenty of plants and seedlings, and even a few flowers like this Sonata White.
However round the other side of the dog rose the self-seeded cosmos from last year are doing really well with a carpet of foliage
The pot marigold seeds I sowed on the main flower patch last week are already starting to show, and elsewhere there are plenty of flowers like these yellow ones under the cornus.
The other flowers are candytuft Fairy Mixed Colours which are self-seeded.
I’m still picking a few rhubarb stems every couple days or so, and this morning I picked the first strawberry with lots more to come.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
