Hello again… I'm trying to get back to regular blogging but since our daughter Lily arrived, it's been a little hectic here to say the least! Although she's not home yet, we're certainly getting closer and she's doing really well.
Given we've barely looked at our garden for the past five weeks, it's doing surprisingly well. These photos were taken about a month ago, just as the cut flowers were starting to bloom and the vegetables showed their first signs of growth.
We still have absolutely loads of sweet peas, I'm so thrilled they've grown as last years failed miserably! The anemones have finished flowering now but they were beautiful while they lasted (mental note to plant more next year). The dahlias and cosmos are now in full bloom and are absolutely stunning.
The vegetables have worked remarkably well… we have somewhat of a glut of runner beans and courgettes, and they taste so much better than the shop-bought ones! In the other raised bed (not pictured) the slugs reached the cabbages before we did (though one was saved) but we do have huge numbers of beetroot and potatoes.
