Three dry days in a row! That must be some kind of record!! I was sat taking a break and eating my lunch, when I looked down the plot. It struck me how lovely it was, sat in the warm, with the birds singing loudly, looking at my hard work (even lovelier if you ignore the massive patch of weeds in the strawberry patch!) Half the strawberry patch is clear (ish) of weeds, and has been fertilised. The rest of the strawberries will have to take their chances with the buttercups, plantain, and couch grass for this season, and will be treated to some attention at the end of the season.
I've been cycling down to the allotment, to try and burn a few extra calories, and it has been very pleasant.
Busy clearing beds, and sowing seeds. the top plot is definitely getting there, the lower plot, well, the less said about that the better!!
I'm not sure we will get much fruit this year from the trees. The apple tree has very little blossom, and the plums, whilst laden with blossom earlier in the season, were then hit by all that awful weather, so I'm not holding my breath on those either. But I guess we did have a bumper crop last year.
I just wish I was as good at growing crops as I am at growing weeds!!
The onions are looking good, but the peas have had a 50% failure rate at germination, so some resowing needed there. We are now at that time when I am wondering whether it is safe to put the tender plants out, hmmm, surely nearly June must be frost free? But then again, this year has been so topsy turvy, I think I will play it safe!!
