Not the flight delays, sunburn or lost luggage; my main holiday worry is how the pots will cope without me.
I have a wonderful reliable friend staying for two weeks while I jet off to exotic Corfu, but I’m reluctant to ask her to water too many pots and hanging baskets, as well as the main garden (on the off chance that it gets sunny here), while also looking after the cats and the fish.
I’ve left everything that needs watering on the deck, so its all in one place, and will just hope that the seedlings survive the usual slug attacks and occassional downpour. I just read Ian digs v2’s blog showing the devastation caused by rain, so one more thing to worry about. (Thanks Ian!).
On the plus side, the tomatoes are just coming ready, Gardeners Delight living up to its name. I might have some brussels sprouts soon too, if the cabbage white’s don’t completely destroy them.
