Somehow, this post ended up in my drafts folder, but as I’ve written it, here is my garden at the end of July. It actually looks fuller now, even though I started to pull plants out. Not for much longer, I suspect, though!
I was taken aback when I walked into the garden after a few days away yesterday evening. Had the plants really looked this big and productive at the beginning of the week?
The onions were the first thing that sprung out from the crowd. There’s a meal or two in them alright. The cucumbers also appear to be doing noticeably well, although they are still but small. At least they have been fertilised, so I won’t have the shenanigans I had this time last year.
The greenhouse cover, you may notice, is nowhere to be seen in the photo. Did I mention before that I was taking it down while we were away?
I think not….. In any case, my rationale was in part to allow any rain to water the plants ‘in’ the greenhouse. Except it didn’t rain. I mean, in London on Friday they had a month’s rain in a day but by the time the rain clouds moved north there was obviously just a sprinkling left.
Never mind. There have been a few spots of rain now, so I’ll leave the cover off till that’s blown over and then get the plants snuggled up again under what’s left of the plastic.
