It feels like summer is almost here...
Today it was almost 30 degrees in our garden and still no rain! I think this is the driest it's been at this time of year since we arrived and we're watering everything by hand - it's a bit time consuming but has to be done.
Some of you will know already that we were worried about our oak tree last year and had to get the tree surgeon in again after a huge branch just fell off. His prognosis wasn't good. Things were looking even worse in very early spring as all the new leaves that appeared, went brown, shriveled up and died then blew off. We thought that was it. However we spoke to someone we know who owns Wyldewood and he said not to panic as there was one very late frost and with a bit of luck that was all that had happened. Thankfully the oak is now flourishing again.
The veggies are all coming along brilliantly.
I wish I had something that could do time lapse photography, as these beans were just out of the ground this morning, by the afternoon they'd grown over 4 cm! Amazing.
these are the scarlet runners - doing beautifully.
The elderflowers are pretty much ready to be picked to make cordial. I think we'll have to do that next weekend now as we've sort of run out of time today.
