The couple of weeks has been very rainy – which has rather made it difficult to do much in the garden not that I’ve had much spare time anyway. I have managed to plant some bedding plants in the front garden (they’ve been hanging around for a week waiting…) which has made it look rather better.
Broad Beans – the far row is flowering – really!
Elsewhere, the potatoes are coming through well and will need earthing up soon, and the rocket, radishes and carrots are coming along (see pic below).

I’ve managed to get three tomato plants into a growbag at last (outside greenhouse) – they are all cherry type. Just tonight some of the lettuce have finally made into the garden – just another 50 or so in the tray….
Inside the greenhouse, some olive type tomatos are through at last, along with some french and runner beans – well better late than never.. Various other things haven’t appeared, so it’s a bit depressing really, and I need to have another planting session otherwise there will be a large section of garden with nothing in (not to mention several empty growbags and a half-empty greenhouse).
The weather has cleared up a bit now, but still showery. The result of all the rain of course has meant that the grass need cutting again, and the hedges as well of course – the problem is just when I will have time…
