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!

– 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 🙂 something I have not done in a while (for myself anyway) and I had my lovely fluffy assistant to help!
