With the weather being a little cooler this week, and the occasional rain, we have been able to relax a bit after the past two hard months of wielding hosepipes and watering cans night and morning, and much apprecaited this rest has been too.
will be back on track when the vital components, ie the jars, arrive. Once the tomtoes are under control again, I can look at preserving some of the beetroot and carrot harvests. They are fine in the ground right now, but if the rodents should start to move
in again, they will certainly be a casualty again.
The flowers are now beginning to catch up a bit, and cosmos are opening into a flurry of pink and whie flowers, punctuated by purple verbena and greeny gold fennel seedheads. I'll take some photos to
show you for next week's blog
This particular beauty is a Red Monardia, which suddenly has burst forth from a fairly unpromising looking small plant. It's other name is Bee Balm, and it certainly is popular with bees.
I shall be back
next Monday, hopefully with neat rows of jars in the garage store. Thank you for all your kind comments... I enjoy reading them and it is good to have evidence there are real people out there reading this!
