|We are getting such heavy downpours of rain, interspaced with short bursts of sunshine, that everything is looking lush and green. It isn't the weather for sitting out or doing much in the garden because no sooner do I get my boots on or set up a deckchair or put some washing on the line than the heavens open once more.|
But, after parched conditions, the flowers are loving it.
We are eating well from the veg plot
and the Lands End shirt is wearing well!
A really good crop of carrots this year
and we are eating climbing French beans like there's no tomorrow!
The squash are growing to gigantic proportions with all the rainfall. They are spreading into other plants and climbing up the bean supports. I'm hoping that they won't start to topple over.
I've no desire to rush through summer
but signs of the autumn food crop
and shaping up well.
