Gardening Friday


By csarina


It was a bright morning with strong sunshine, so we set off for the garden a little trepidatious as to the damage the weather might have caused.

We were relieved to see that everything was ok and that J had been watering for us, quite a few seeds were though. Unfortunately so were the weeds, The poly tunnel has been prepared for the tomato plants, the strawberries seem a little confused, they are putting out runners but also flowering. We weeded and hoed the onions and garlic, I watered the rhubarb and comfrey and the seeds in the poly tunnel, I also planted a cougette in the poly tunnel, it was threatening to strangle the other plants in the propagater. We walked round to the pear walk to look at the rhubarb thats planed there. Next time I go I will clear the weeds from round it, feed and water it. At the end of the autumn we will dig it up and leave the crowns on the soil to over winter and then replant it in the walled garden next spring. A good morning at the garden…..

Pleased you didn't find any damage and that you had a good morning, the rain has helped here a lot as well, things are showing now, I always think no matter how much you keep watering its never as good as rain, especially if its gets a bit of warmth as well..
