To hot to garden, time to knit!

Posted on Updated on

This weekend was so hot! So the plot plans sort of went out the window. But we got some things done….

What we did:
-dug out the spinach, put in new seed.
-weeded
-covered up my betroots again (they have no modest 😜)
– and collected a some of the sweet pea pods (in colours… So hopefully next year I can make sure I grow a bit of everything.

Eat/harvest list:
-rocket
-spinach
-spring onions
-greenhouse tomatoes at last
-the odd raspberry

Things to watch:
– The sunflowers are flowing at last, and the bee population are having a field day!

Sunflower all the buzz

– The giant cucumber… We are still eating last week’s monster!
– The cape gooseberrys are forming!! I never thought this would actually happen (as I nearly killed them off)

Much of the weekend was used for knitting ๐Ÿ™‚ something I have not done in a while (for myself anyway) and I had my lovely fluffy assistant to help!

    Gardening, knitting – seem to go together very well indeed.
    Fascinated by your cape gooseberry – it is difficult to grow? taste good? sounds like an interesting addition to the plot.

    I’m a gardening / sewing fan! Think these things are perfectly paired! Your crops are doing really well, I start to lose momentum a little bit at this time of year!!
