Hello, not much new to report here this week. The weather is really trying my patience and the odd sunny day seems all the more precious when it does arrive. Yesterday was lovely so I decided it was time to get planting out some veggies. I started with the climbing beans, which predictably sulked and went all droopy at the tips, even though it was quite warm out. Thankfully all but a couple have perked up today and I'll pinch out the others and hope they shoot again. There's a few runner beans still to go out, but they can wait a while.
Also planted the dwarf French beans (Sonesta) and courgettes (Safari and Sunstripe) covered with some tunnels while they get used to the fresh air!
Everything is looking lovely and green again, not surprising with all this rain
I've been thinking about digging up more of the "grass" to extend the veg plot towards the house, and give me more space to grow herbs, roses, lavender etc. I think it could look lovely, but would be quite a bit of work to get it dug over and fenced to keep the rabbits out. I marked out a plan with canes and stuck a couple of pots in the middle where there would be a bird bath or something. Still trying to decide if Lottie would be left with enough running around space!
Indoors the cloakroom is progressing slowly. It's been painted and the basin is plumbed in and usable. Just the loo to do now and then I need to think about shelves and stuff.
Bye for now
