A few snippets from the garden.
The peaches are coming on a treat. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they hang on until maturity, how exciting it will be to harvest my own peaches.
More seed trays planted up, this time with dwarf French beans, though I shall be sowing more climbing beans this week too as the slugs have devoured the ones I've already planted at the allotment. I've never used slug pellets before but I may have to resort to it this year.
My leeks never get to the size of a pencil before they're planted out, they just never seem to thicken up. Perhaps it's because they're sown and grown in the same pot, I don't pot them on at all.
Do you remember the lovely terracotta pots I bought at the local plant sale? They were a bargain at £1 each. Here's one of them potted up with pelargoniums which I overwintered from last year. It's stood to one side of my back door. Excuse the weeds in the paving, that's another job I need to get round to.
Here's what's at the other side of the door.
You may wonder why I don't have a terracotta pot at each side. This is why.
Mick somehow managed to get Archie's lead wrapped around the pot as he was leaving the house and brought it crashing to its side with calamitous consequences. It's only fit for crocks now.
My new rose, Golden Wings, has another flower bud. Archie seems very keen and keeps checking to see if it's open.
We had a thunder and lightening storm yesterday afternoon and there's another one due today. It looks like the rest of the week is set to be dry, let's hope the forecasters have got it right as there's lots of jobs I need to be getting on with.
