good morning, all.
cloudless at the moment but we are meant to have a few clouds soon (but not overcast) and it's a little breezy.
it was cloudless all day down on the south coast and about 20°c (well, for the time i was down there) but slightly more hazy up here and cooler.
i came home with a big bag of spinach and beetroot tops and a nice courgette plant ready to go in - we only sowed them a couple of weeks ago, it seems.
we also planted out climbing french beans, mangetout peas and sweet peas, and sowed carrots, parsnips, beetroot, radishes, pot marigolds, californian poppies and ordinary peas. mice had eaten the broad beans - little burgers.
the stuff i sowed at home last week, in home made paper pots (origami type, not the cylindrical ones) is coming on well. i have a few long beans that i forgot to do so they'll get done later.
i have a tiny patch of garden (3m x 2m - going down to 1m, so wedge shaped) which is north facing but bright with a little bit of late sun on the narrow end of the wedge. at the moment it's covered with a weed barrier and stones, which i aim to remove (it's vile and barren). i'm having dilemmas about what to plant. i'm swinging between something like the planting at the minack (we have a load of 'ugly' rocks available- the large lumps of rock from the base of a cornish hedge), herbs and fruit bushed although the latter may like more sun (and it's where people may be tempted to pick). it's quite a dry area as the weather usually comes at us from the southwest. any suggestions?
my coffee's going cold.
have a glorious day, everyone.
