It rained during…

Wednesday, most of Thursday and again this morning which has been welcome given how dry it’s been recently.

The carrots (pictured right) and potatoes are doing well,  but the magpies are still being a nuisance and seem to be pecking  and pulling at everything this year.

I put the canes up on Friday for the climbing French beans and sowed some seeds Algarve yesterday. I’ll be sowing some dwarf French beans Sprite and sweet corn Golden Hind during the coming week, along with some more carrots Paris Market.  

The comfrey plants (pictured left) have grown considerably and are about to flower, which will attract the bees.

This week looks like getting noticeably warmer for a couple of days with the temperature reaching 25 C/77 F on Tuesday.

Have a good week, and take care!

  1. Thank you for the photo of the whole plot, it looks wonderful!
    You have so many different varieties of vegetables, it’s hard for me to keep up!
    Since May 8 we’ve been in the high 70’s to mid 80’s F and no rain! Liz.


    1. Liz you’re most welcome, and thanks. Surprisingly I have less than many plot holders, oh dear!
      That’s too warm for me, and fingers crossed you get some rain. xx


  2. Lovely images, thank you. Welcome bit of rain lately, so needed. Mind you looking forward to hot sunny days. Have a good week, Andy xx


  3. Love the last picture in particular, it’s looking amazing. I’m still waiting for my French beans to germinate, hope they’re up soon. It won’t be as warm here I don’t think, and there’s more rain on the way. Much needed though, as you say. I hope you have a good week. CJ xx
