Everything I’ve ever read about growing vegetables, will note that courgettes are easy to grow and you will have a glut of them. I was ridiculously excited about my first ever courgette in June, at the end of last week, I had picked 14 courgettes and on Monday, another 8. We are in courgette glut. I’m quite enjoying it.
Other things that are going well. Sweet peasYou have to pick them to encourage them to continuing to flower, and there are more every time I go to do the watering. I have actual pea pods with peas in them and tiny french beans, I also grew radishes, which makes me happy.The salad got a wall and we collected loads of seeds from the afgan poppies, which makes Ma happy as she wants to pull them up, they are absolutely in a bad spot and we did a bit of planning of the space.Tasks for next week are potting strawberry runners, cutting back the raspberries, weeding and burning the dead plants pile!
It’s vain but I want the place to look as good as it can before my brother and Jo come next week and as I am my mother’s daughter that means tidy!
