GWRS, Well done, every so pleased for you...
After entering the local show I didn't put anything in...... it was always going to be a case of showing what was ready and finding time to harvest it. The show also clashed with friends staying, who can only come down during the Scottish school holidays.
The weather in the NW couldn't have been better here this year. Radish, beetroot, swede and lettuce sown or planted out a couple of weeks ago is beginning to romp away. Dahlias, dwarf sunflowers, sweet pea and gladioli are all beginning to flower. Cosmos has been in flower for a few weeks.
There's been a lot going on at home and so I haven't had time to harvest stuff. I've been so lucky berries and currants haven't been eaten by birds. Harvested the first toms, cues and chillies.
