I (did) have all three of these in the garden this morning.
Haven't been able to get out there for a few days, so everything was a bit neglected until today. Didn't get as much done as I wanted to, what with doggie walking, shopping and stopping for food making (kids!) but there you go.
Okay, first up, the good, of which there are just a few photos:
Himalayan Blue Poppy:
Kale - Redbor. I shall be sampling this for lunch tomorrow!
Strawberries at last! These started flowering way back in April, but until now there haven't been any fruits. Hope the rain stays off so they can ripen without going mushy.
Runner Beans have reached the top of the poles! Hoorah!
BAD point - I accidentally snapped a stem whilst weeding today :( Bugger!!
Planted out the rest of the greenhouse bits in the new raised bed I finished a few days ago.
BAD point - I didn't continue with the Cucumber as they were not very forthcoming in the end. I saved one Courgette, so we'll see how it does.
Those Carrots I told you about the other time. These have come on greatly, mainly because I put some fleece over the top in the hope that I could keep the 'fly' off them. Then the s***e weather hit and ripped the fleece! Had to remove one piece, so I hope them creepies stay off...
Now for more BAD elements. That flipping rain we had put paid to the fresh Rosebuds. Not only are they all speckled, but some of them just won't be able to open as the petals have all stuck together!
Darned slugs have been at the plantings I did last time.
The poor Chard has been the worst hit, along with my Hostas!
And it has been so chilly recently that my florals are soooo far behind.
I mean, these should be flowering by now!
And last but not least - the UGLY!!
This is just one of the Chinese Leaf plants that has gone to seed.
This should NOT be happening, but everything is so confused dot com!
And this is one of my Cabbage plantings from last Autumn that has also started flowering instead of forming a lovely heart. Rest assured though, I did manage to salvage some of it for Sunday Lunch last week! Trouble is, the rest of them are going the same way!
And finally, the most UGLY of all - Lovage:
This brut was planted last year, thinking I could pop some in my stews and casseroles.
Little did I know it would grow so HUGE and be such a thug!
Needless to say it is no more...
