Phew, it's SCORCHIO today! Mustn't grumble though, only last week I was whinging that it was too cold and wet to plant out, and now I still can't plant out as it is too hot during the day. Have to wait until evening me thinks. I have done a wee bit here and there though. A couple of days ago I planted out a few bits in a tub, Spinach, Chard and Calendula in this one:
And here is the two varieties of Radish I planted a while ago, beginning to ripen and bulk up now. I pulled two just to see how they are going. One is supposed to be the regular red type, and the other a white, long type. Both are white just now though, weird!
I put some of them them in next to the Cabbage from the autumn planting. They are doing very well indeed! I am surprised at how tall they are.
My spuds are coming along nicely in their old compost bags. I have been topping up the compost around them as they grow taller, almost at the top of the ones on the left there. Those are the earliest first earlies - Swift, so I am hoping to lift them soon.
My mini greenhouse still has a lot of stuff in it. Butternut Squash doing OK, but I need to pot them on or plant them out real soon.
Courgettes doing great as well. Gotta find a warm spot for them too.
Not so fab on the Cucumber front though. Two have wilted and died, and the others don't look so well either, very yellow. I'll try potting them on to see if it is a nutrient thing. Any other suggestions or ideas?
Just loooove the colours. I also love this deciduous Azalea, it has such a gorgeous scent, and lovely bright flowers. I also have a red one of these, but it is a bit behind this orange, as it is in the shade. I want to get the yellow version too, but am having a hard job finding one!
I came across an old Chive I planted a couple of years back, flowering away, and had to snap it. Found a setting on the camera for floral photos and tried using that. It blurs out the background and focuses on the flower. Nice!
And finally, the first Rose of the season. This is a 'patio' type rose. My son chose this one, as he loves orange, turned out to be more red than orange in the end, but it is very pretty.
