I got a second wind at dusk – had already removed a number of poppies during the day and decided to more or less finish off the job later. There is a final tomato plant to put in the ground and I thought I had identified the spot for it.
Considering seakale is supposed to prefer moist conditions, I doubt the spot where I sowed the seeds earlier in the year is ideal. Further, the strands of green in the above photo look very much like gladioli.
However, part of me is reluctant to disturb this ground, just in case I’ve got it completely wrong. Still, I think the next apple tree is going to go there anyway, and then that would definitely put paid to any hopes of seakale in the near future.
I have actually ordered the apple tree, a Ribston Pippin, which will hopefully be delivered in November. So, that’s something to look forward to as we head into winter!
