Goodness me but the verbascum is the best it’s ever been, with more flowers to come.
The carnations are also in bloom, and I’ve planted a few more in the middle of the patch, where it’s getting bare.
Our sunflower seeds are growing very well, and I really must thin them out in the very near future or it’s going to be chaos in there!
I also have a few rudbeckia plug plants over from planting them at home yesterday, so I’ve added them to the perennial bed:
Meanwhile the asparagus is becoming a forest, LOL! I’ve harvested these for today but I think that’ll be the end of the season now.
We have also planted the Brussels sprouts which ended up filling one and a half beds. The photo below is taken before we put the netting on but rest assured we did rescue the trowel before putting the netting in place!
The peas are growing well, and K has now put in some stakes they can grow up.
We are amazed at the amount of currants on the current bushes – they’re already so thick with fruit that the branches are weighed down! We’d best buy more netting to sort them out before the birds get there first …
I have to say that the soil was also the driest I’ve ever known it so we did as much watering as possible while there. Here is the harvest of asparagus, verbascum and carnations:
And here are the vases at home:
Stay safe, everyone.
