Down at the garden today


By csarina


Its a lovely day sunny and warm but a cooling breeze. Down at the garden this morning I took things a bit steady. Watered, cut 2 lettuce, one for the house, pulled some spinich……planted 9 more calabrese and hoed the cabbages, brussels and cauliflowers.

OH ridged up the spuds, tied in the beans and then helped me with the netting over the brassicas.

The sweet peas have been tied in and I have taken the fleece off, so crossed fingers we do not get a frost. The strawberries are flowering and now we have sun maybe they will ripen. The peach tree has a lot of fruit coming, I will have to put the sticky band round the trunk to stop the earwigs getting in, nasty things……
