Hi, everyone. It's another lovely start to the day with sunshine and a breeze. I've been out and around the tomatoes, etc, looking carefully and picking where I can and I'm looking forward to breakfast al fresco. Delightful!
Yesterday stayed fine all day and was quite hot at times. I did a stint down the allotment, coming back with runners, baby corn and raspberries. The courgettes are finally picking up and there are several little courgettes coming along. Must keep an eye out - once they get going they can get big so fast.
I started weeding around them and will carry on this afternoon when Beth and I go down together. She wants to dig up some more potatoes and there are lots of sweet peas to pick plus a few more baby corns, I expect; they're another that grows so fast once they start.
Less than half the row of dwarf French beans has survived being nibbled back by snails, which is disappointing, but those that have come through are looking strong so I will definitely get some results from them while the ones at home are also coming in well.
I was pleased to note that the autumn cropping broad beans are starting to come up too. I don't remember snails being interested in them so fingers crossed.
Today is a quiet day apart from Beth coming down this afternoon. Hopefully it will be a sit-out-in-the-garden-and-chill kind of day.
There's a bit of washing to do and all the usual daily stuff but apart from that, lovely!
Happy Sunday to us all. xx
