We finally got round to planting the tulips at the allotment – though actually we’re not late at all, as they can’t be planted out till November at the earliest due to the possibility of tulip rot if you try to plant out any earlier.
Anyway, here they are about to be planted:
And here they are with the netting weighed down with sticks on them in order to put off the pesky thieving squirrels. Here’s hoping it works!
In order to free up the new tulip bed, I did take out the gladioli which we will store until next year:
At the same time, K pruned the currant bushes to give them a chance to get some air and light in them:
So, a mini-harvest this week of the remains of the beetroot and the last good cabbage. We’ve really enjoyed the cabbages this year and will definitely do them again!
Have a great Sunday.
