a really bad year for slugs and snails, which still remain numerous and voracious.
On a brighter note I’ve started lifting the onions Sturion, which thankfully are looking good, and the first second early potatoes Charlotte. I’m also picking plenty of good sized blackberries, along with a few raspberries and the last of the rhubarb.
I’m glad that I grew the sunflowers in two areas as the ones by the shed have mostly been eaten by the slugs and snails but thankfully the others, between the self-seeded cosmos and the rhubarb, remain untouched.
The highlight of the week was watching two Gatekeeper butterflies fluttering around the candytuft Fairy Mixed Colours. I think that these are delightful flowers which I’ll certainly be growing again next year in the same corner.
Take care, and have a good week!
