This week’s double frosts have certainly done their worst for the dahlias:
And the yakons too have come to an end – though the good news with them is the frost simply indicates that they’re ready for cropping so we have collected a good harvest from them:
Strangely though, our gladioli bed doesn’t appear to have got the memo about the frost so we still have a flower stem!
We have spent most of the summer being utterly unable to enter our shed (oh the shame of it!) due to the amount of stuff – mainly discarded netting – in there. So today we’ve made a good start on it as you can see – and we can actually get inside now!
As it’s November, it’s now okay to plant tulips (as if you plant them earlier you’re in danger of losing them all to tulip rot) so that’s what I have done today:
Once under the ground, we covered them with netting and sticks to stop the squirrels digging them all up again – which usually works:
Today, we have a decent harvest of sweet williams, that one gladioli, yakons, lettuces, beetroot and carrots:
Here is the vase at home:
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
