The sun shone here in the south for most of the day and it was back to warmth and some work on the plot.
The peas are coming along and setting lots of pods but to my surprise some of the lower ones had been chomped despite wire netting around the bed.When we walked on to the plot a rabbit ran from between the lavender and pea bed but I thought they could not get at the peas?!I had to put more netting over the lower one to prevent anymore incursions.
Some of the snowball onions drying, these were about 10 that Michael had given me earlier in the year to try out.
The second row of netting around the peas, I had to adjust the colour of some photos as the sun was so bright at this time of the day!
Our lavender is nearly ready to cut, the bees are colonising it at the moment and anyone who passes takes a blossom to smell!
The main onion bed. I bent over the stalks as it seems to be the done thing but I am not too sure of the benefits of it?!The onions on this bed are all good sized bulbs now and hopefully the weather will be dry enough to allow them to dry properly.
The new bright green growth on the yard long beans, they had stayed at the level of the lower darker green leaves for ages and then last week decided to sprout upwards!
The girls picked the last of their mange tout,strawberries and lettuce and generally tidied up their beds which still have carrots,parsnips and they also bent over their onions.
I cut down the foliage of the dwarf green beans and added it to our compost heap leaving the roots in the ground, I wondered should I loosen them as they could sprout again, any ideas?
I picked the last few strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrants and made Matron's Summer Pudding which is setting in the fridge for another few hours.
