The last few days have been warm and sunny, a mini Indian Summer, the warmer weather has brought a few surprises,
The late planting of French Beans seems to have worked as they are now in bloom so we should be picking them in a few weeks, the peas are also looking good but not in bloom yet.
The new bed is now finished and the new plants installed, some of the herbaceous plants have also been split and re-homed, but as everything has been so slow this year there are still a lot that require splitting, the Rudbeckia's and Echinacea are just blooming now, at least a month later than they should be.
There have been a few disappointments this year, the asparagus which was doing well got set back with late frosts so we only had three feeds from it, the runner beans are so late so far just the one meal and the peach tree which showed such promise in early spring with lots of bloom has failed to produce one single fruit, maybe we didn't water it enough now it's in the tunnel. Note to self, must water the peach tree regularly next year. Apart from that everything has done well.
With decent weather the last week has been spent in the garden, we have not had time for a day out other than our weekly trip to the farmers market.
