The swimming baths were a bit chilly this morning, so I was pleasantly surprised when we came out into the afternoon sunshine and 20°C. Everything seems to going well in the garden and it looks like I’m going to need to do some watering this evening.
Inside the house, we are onto eating cucumber no. 3, with two more on the way. There are three aubergines as well. Then, in view of the fact that the tomatoes seem resistant to ripening on the vine, I have taken to moving a tub of them in and out of the house to speed things up a bit. I did eat one a couple of weeks ago and there could be a few more very soon I hope.
In some ways, though, I’m getting fed up of summery weather. I just want the final crops to finish so that I can get on with sorting the garden out for next year. At least the ryegrass (green manure) from very old seeds is starting to grow. That means it is worth my while sowing the rest of that packet. Better get some more spring bulbs planted before I do that then!
