I've been going through my seed box to see what can still be sown.

Took it easy this morning, sowing seeds, dead heading flowers and pruning fruit trees.


Came home with armfuls of flowers. Dahlias are doing really well. Picked my first mini pop. Sweet corn doesn't do well this far North, it's hit and miss, the growing season isn't always long enough. 


Pumpkin plants, Chinese Lanterns are taking over, I was given the plants, they are green with stripes. ... didn't know pumpkins came in that colour...


Happy growing everyone.

I used L shaped brackets to anchor my shed down. 


Went to the plot to water, about six sunflowers had been blown over, one had snapped. The others seemed to be still attached to their roots, so I stood them back up and secured them as best I could. Not sure they will live though...


Gardensuper Store is having a closing down sale, 20% off everything so bought an edging spade and some other bits  

Please help me figure out what's happening.

If it was flea beetle you'd see them jumping when you disturb the foliage and they prefer tender leaves on seedlings.
