After the hectic week setting everything up for the sculpture garden it’s been a bit calmer so far after the Bank Holiday.
The weather seems to have turned against us making mowing tricky, trying to fit it all in between the showers. All the fruit cage netting is now up to protect the young fruitlets of the gooseberries, currants and strawberries from the birds.
This week we hoep to visit the nursery to purchase the plants we need to fill up the empty beds in the long walk. Tomatoes, broadbeans and asparagus are all doing well as are Geoff’s sweetpeas so, fingers crossed, will have some good crops this year.
