And wouldn't you just know it - I went out and watered those plants which were dried out and in urgent need of a drink. The pot plants, and all the newly planted cuttings and strawberries and veggies - in the garden. But not up the allotment - that's left to nature - and I am so glad that last time I was up there I 'scalped' the lawns when I mowed. The weeds will start with a vengence now though!
This will bore you - so no need to read it - it's for my information only really - cos I keep losing my lists.
I have been sowing seeds and this is a good way to remember the varieties
Climbing bean borlotto - Fire Tongue
And Climbing bean - Goldfield
Onion - Summer Isle - bunching summer onions
Courgette - 3 varieties, dark green, yellow and pale green - long ones
Pole beans - Eden (green) and Goldfield (yellow) lovely wavy ones
There are more trays of pots I didn't photograph as my camera batteries went flat.
Swiss chard beet - Bright lights
Pumpkin - Jack be Little
The mixes salads I planted during the week are appearing already - it never ceases to amaze me, the sheer wonder of how all the plants grow - from tiny seeds, to seedlings, to plants, to food!
I have also got to plant
Carrot - Mignon and Atlas
Pea - Sugar Snow
Salad leaves - speedy mix
Bush beans - Red Splendido and Yellow Cresco
And plenty more!
