Well, I hate going on about the weather. I'm sure you're all as fed up with it as me, but it must be bad if there's big slugs in our garden. We NEVER get slugs but I found a few munching on my newly planted Cavolo Nero, broccoli and cauli's :( I won't use pellets because of Lottie, but how do you dispose of the revolting things?
Other damp casualties are the courgettes that are growing well, but a lot of the fruits are going mouldy before picking. Same with the squashes that are looking very sorry for themselves
Still, it's not all doom and gloom. I've picked some courgettes along with lots of mangetout peas and broad beans. Some of the strawberries were mouldy, but most were ok. And the raspberries are doing really well. We had some yesterday with some lemon tart and cream and they were delicious.
Something else that's loving the weather is the mint in the tub by the back door. If we get a dry day (haha!) I'm going to chop it back and try freezing it in portions, otherwise it'll go all leggy and start to flower.
The sweet peas are starting to flower, along with the hollyhocks and I picked my first dahlia flower, but it had been chewed by something, so not very photogenic!
The runner beans (Polestar) are looking pretty and the French beans (Cosse Violette) are finally growing well, though they have really struggled this year.
Finally, some flowers from the garden to brighten your day!
Have a good weekend!
