My gardening activity is quite varied at the moment since most of the plants in my garden are growing at a different pace.

Picking Green Beans

Picking Green Beans

In the vegetable plot I have been busy watering and feeding my organic vegetables such as courgettes, French beans and sweet corn.

I have had my first harvest of green beans and courgettes and I am still picking at the Black kale leaves which I like to include in my stir fries.

The tomato plants in the greenhouse are growing well and fruits have formed but none is ready yet for harvest. And the outdoor tomatoes are at a similar stage although smaller.

The rose bushes have blossomed and I have dead-headed the faded flowers to encourage another set of blooms. I am enjoying the burst of orange colour which the day lilies have provided for the last 3 weeks. My main flower border is evolving as the annual flowers are blossoming and in turn fading.
