It's Raining...a lot!
So I just wandered round the garden getting the camera wet! It's actually more to have a record of what everything looked like when I planted it so I can compare it to later pics ( or even when I get home from my trip to Scotland next week! Next week is when I leave! Not back till the end of October)
I suppose all this rain keeps everything green, but it's been pretty steady for a few days now and quite frankly I'd like to see the sun! Not least cos Ness and I need to paint the outside of the new dental surgery and we can't really do it in the pouring rain!
Anyway, here's some photos of the very wet garden.
This one was taken out the bedroom window!
these are still waiting to get planted out, some are still too small though, like the aubergines.
sweetcorn looking teeny
broad beans, Chinese greens and spring onions - also looking teeny and some carrots looking...well...invisible!
One of our ( very few) asparagus. It's been rubbish this year, the ones we've had have been lovely but so far I think we've had about 8 stalks!
Lovely early Agrias coming through
Mesculin mix I planted out yesterday
Rocket which looked like the mesculin last week
Some of the beans
A rescued from the paddock globe artichoke, we've got room for about 10 more round the avocado orchard so we'll go and dig them up before the cows get into them!
One very empty looking veggie garden, but in a few weeks there should be a huge difference.
Couldn't resist leaning over the fence and taking this ~ a wet looking highland cow. If you look closely you can see the rain pelting down!
