I had intended to plant out one of the purple sprouting broccoli plants when I got home this evening. However, it was already starting to get dark. And I got sidetracked by the sight that presented itself when I went outside.
Now, I have no explanation for how the gate, which has been laying against the fence in the herb garden, would decide to fall over today. Why didn’t it fallen over before, when there were gusts of wind? Today it’s been 2mph.
Fortunately, the bay tree seems to have survived the unexpected heavy object falling on it
and the self-seeded chard will probably bounce back. The cucumber vine which I found amongst some weeds which had been growing under the gate, however, will not. All that was left where it had been planted as the pole it was growing up.
