It's been a strange week with fog at night and a mixture of rain and sun during the day. It was so foggy Wednesday evening I couldn't see the houses opposite.
The garden is looking full and colourful after the rain we've had but it still needed watering again today. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get out there as much as I would like and the weeds have taken hold so I'm going to have to get stuck into that next week.
On Wednesday I staked the tomatoes in the greenhouse
Today I put in the pond clear. It does help to keep the blanket weed down but because the pond is in direct sun for most of the day the water is never really clear. It won't be long before the tadpoles are frogs.
The courgettes are doing well, hopefully this could be the year I am successful with them as I usually only get a couple from each plant then it dies
I've planted marigolds in with the tomatoes, courgettes, beans, lettuces and peas to hopefully detract the slugs from the veg and also to deter the green and black fly.
I earthed up the pentland javelin spuds
Nothing new on the flower front apart from an explosion of nigella everywhere which is delicate and pretty (note tip of right foot in foreground!)
I went to Bristol zoo during the week and had to take a photo of this amazing tree - no idea what it is
Well, that's it for this week, I'll be back in a couple of weeks and it'll be interesting to see how much the garden has grown.
