The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow
Well so they say, although we have had a few heavy down pours the past few days once it passes over the sun has popped out to say hello, This evening has been ok, I have just been out to water the poly tunnels and have a quick look around the veg beds.
The garlic is fantastic
I am looking forward to harvesting it, I grew it from some of our saved garlic from last year.
The peas that were started in the guttering are romping away with lots of pods, another week and we should be picking them
Plenty of nice heads forming on the globe artichokes, they are now big enough to start eating.
Behind them the Jerusalem Artichokes a lovely late season vegetable.
The parsnips are growing in one of the pallet collar beds outside the 1st poly tunnel.
My son has put together the beds outside the 2nd poly tunnel they are now ready for planting, I might get started on it tomorrow if the weather holds.
Onions these were planted in the Autumn
These were planted in the spring,
My £1 clematis I bought last year has really come on well
My first lily to flower this year, adds a lovely splash of orange, most of the flowering plants in the garden this time of year seem to be purples and pinks, I will have to rectify that.
Lets hope the rain holds off tomorrow,
