JULY 2016

It’s July and summer brought a heatwave then; rain & sun = lush!
We have crops! We have loads of leafy growth everywhere but when its hot its hard to get the energy to tender the garden.
But I have a jungle which is cool….

Agapanthas is about to burst into flower!

Lots of crops are giving up their veggie delights. Mange tout Shiraz has been nice, though not that abundant. But easy to spot, always a bonus. Other peas have just disappeared altogether. but very please with rainbow chard that has self seeded from last year. Every evening I visit the plot for my dinner, little and often is the way I harvest.
