I have lots of plants ready to plant out but realised that there was no way I would be able to plant all of them. I chose the courgettes as they will produce,I hope, very quickly. However, digging two holes and filling them with some of my lovely compost was a very hot task and sweat dripped off me. Rather stupidly, I stripped off my shirt. (I am suffering a touch of sunburn today!) I planted two yellow courgette plants to go alongside the striped green courgette/marrow plant I already had as I find the yellow courgettes have a more delicate skin and flavour but produce fewer fruits.
The rest of my plants, cucumbers, squashes and pumpkins will have to be planted out another day.
I pulled up a rather sparse row of peas that I planted last autumn and picked the rest of the pods on the plants. I then started uprooting a row of broad beans and extracted a couple of bags of beans.
I then harvested quite a few strawberries, though the crop is slowing down and I shall soon be reliant on the 'Pick Your Own'.
I forgot to cut a savoy cabbage or two (as they are very slow hearting up) as planned but they will be there next time I visit!
Why "Finding Time to Post"? - With these light evenings I struggle to sit down with the computer before 10 pm. and often just run out of time before the heavy eyelids force me to wend my way up to bed!
