Well I suppose it might be that we have been behind with jobs for most of the spring, but the last week or so has been a frenzy of planting.
Yesterday we took 5 trays of plants to get in and we managed most of it.
The soil was perfect .... damp from recent rain .... crumbly and pleasant to touch.
The chickens were wandering around getting into places they shouldn`t be. And using the dahlia bed as a dust-bath.
I planted okra in the polytunnel. I have never tried it before.
The sweet peppers are not big enough as yet.They had a slow start.
The tomatoes are well away.
We are covering vulnerable plants with netting to be on the safe side. We`re sure rabbits are getting in.
The latest from my niece Hazel on rabbits .... they do not like talcum powder so use it round your plants.
We have some pumpkins left over for sale.
The nicotiania is flowering away in the relative shelter.
Things that are looking good at the moment.
The newest fairy has her own garden.
Twenty refurbished ladybirds are hidden round the garden.
Two little girls were excitedly looking for them all yesterday.The hollyhocks are romping away.
And the sweetpeas have just got going.
The fairy garden in the trailer needs some drastic pruning.
It is a victim of its own success.
The poor little barrel caravan is almost hidden.
As is the path.
Asparagus for dinner. Yum yum.
Plus radishes from home.
Lots of campers around enjoying themselves.
Such a wonderful time of the year.
