Bees are still loving the Cosmos, what a sweet flower the bee orchids are

Overview of the summer season- How has your's been?

 Runners- rubbish, Courgettes rubbish, sweet corn rubbish

Beetroots did well. Definately a good year for Rudebekias and Cosmos, the latter being late flowering but looking lovely now

Dreadful stuff, probably the only thing I've used chemicals on. I would go for the easy option on this

I found a couple self seeded the other day, no idea where they have come from. Have dug up and in pots for now, until I decide on a place. I planted some small ones earlier this year, they were tiny.........they look huge now, looking forward to seeing them next year
