Hop Hop And Away
With sunny days and a rise in temperatures,
everything is growing skywards,
The Hop root I planted last month has taken off and is now on its journey climbing up the back of the shed.
The cut flower beds are full of promise, the Lilies are shooting up
The Gladioli are all up with the flowers forming the tell tale sign is the crinkle in the main shoot.
The Dahlias are forming lovely strong clumps
Tomatoes are now coming into flower
every few days I am taking off lots of side shoots, these tomatoes are cordons so its important I don't miss any.
The flower borders in the garden are full of blooms.
Today I made a new run for the teenage chicks giving them a bit more space, these are the first hatching's of this year, now off heat, tomorrow there little house and run will get moved down beside the adult chickens, a chance to get to know each other, in a few weeks they will be moving in with the adult chickens.
The weather has been brilliant the bit of rain we had didn't get all the IBC tanks filled and now they are running low again, but there is plenty there for the animals who need there water topping up a couple of times a day when its hot like this.
But good weather means plenty of jobs gt caught up outside, you have to make hay while the sun shines. 🌞🌞🌞
