I learned on the PDC course that it was normal to have a dip in the weather about now, but I’m hoping that today will be the last of the chilly days.
I do love my garden when it is raining, though. Everything looks so lush. And in comparison with previous years, it already seems quite full. No doubt this is in part because the strawberry plants have grown quite a bit and the Jerusalem artichokes have turned into a field of their own.
Anyway, looking out of the kitchen window onto the greenery
makes up for the fact that the carrots, mangetout and other crops seem to be growing very slowly. And the apple tree seems to be losing its blossom rather quickly. I just hope the bees of various kinds had chance to get it before it was too late!
