We’ve almost followed the rough sketch I made a few months ago for this year’s garden, but we’ve made some changes, as you can see from the scribbles I’ve made, when plants were ready before their allotted plots had been prepared. Almost all our vegetables are planted out and growing now. We seemed to have no space for the chilli pepper plants, but managed to squeeze a few in here and there. Some of the tomato plants have been blown about a bit by the wind, but they’ll recover.
Is summer coming at last?
The weather is warming up – I think I’ve said this before only to see the temperatures drop and the rain start again, but this time I think it’s real. The garden will need watering from now until September, daily for most of that time, but there will be heat to make things grow.
I do like to see shade because it means there’s bright sunlight too, and I liked the shadows of these railings as I walked to the garden this morning.
The irises and the roses looked good in the sunshine too.
