Outside, the chives are magnificent. It’s still natural for me to think of buying food in rather than relying on what we’ve got in the garden, so these could be left to adorn the garden. However, it seems silly to add to our food bill, when there are tasty morsels growing right outside the back door. And these will grow back again.
Outside, in addition to picking, I decided to resow runner beans, as there is no sign of the first lot coming through. At the same time, having just been prompted by an article on The Three Sisters, I added a pumpkin and a sweetcorn seed to the hole. It will be interesting to see which of the plants appears first – if in fact any of them do.
