on the plot this week has been spent dead-heading the pot marigolds Flighty’s Favourites on the main flower patch. I have to say that it has got slightly tedious at times but I think that it will have been worthwhile.
Not only does it all look better but there are new flowers appearing and plenty of buds forming.
The tomatoes are doing well with fruit on both the red Alicante and yellow Golden Sunrise plants, and lots of flowers on the other ones.
The runner bean plants (variety unknown) I was given are starting to flower (see photo) so hopefully I’ll be picking some of these before too long.
I’ve picked a couple of handfuls of climbing French beans Algarve this week, which are a flat type rather than the more usual pencil ones. I had problems getting these to germinate and only ended up with a couple of plants so there won’t be many.
It’s always good to see the various bees working their way through the flowers like this big bumblebee on one of the small sunflowers.
Have a good weekend, and take care!
