It’s the first time for weeks that I’ve been able to get on the garden. After emergency grass cutting (team effort – bless them) I hoed over part of the veg plot and planted out some runner beans. They look fragile as they weren’t really hardened off, but they were tying themselves into Gordian knots in the conservatory and really needed the space.
The wet weather seems to have generated an unspeakable mollusc plague, so, though I disapprove of myself, I have scattered a few slug pellets round the beans. We can’t always live up to our principles.
The tomatoes needed potting on, and I’ve put out some of the other veg plants to harden off.
At intervals I inspected various corners. Some plants seem to have benefited from the rain, while others have struggled.
