Today isn’t exactly ideal gardening weather! It’s still quite breezy (though nothing like as windy as last night) and keeps trying to rain. So while I did manage to get a few bits and bobs done, most of it was in the greenhouse. There was a good deal more removal of sycamore seedlings, but I didn’t do anything else outside.
The main aim this morning was to get something done with the beetroot seedlings, which now have their second pair of leaves emerging. Two thirds of the tray has pretty much filled one of the veg trugs, but they are very close together at the moment and will have to be thinned out again at some point. I also put the two strawberry plants in there. The remaining beetroot plants are going to Mum’s tomorrow. I decided to keep the trug in the greenhouse for now as it’s gone chilly again, and I don’t want the birds destroying the seedlings.
A few other pictures of things doing well this week:
The witch hazel is in full flower:
The side border is looking a bit haphazard but there’s a lot going on – pulmonaria and pale yellow primrose covered in flowers and keeping the local bees well-fed and happy.
