Everything is DRY. I'm wondering if it's going to be like last years drought again ~ this was when the rain stopped then. Looking at the Met forecast you'd think we had rain showers every day for about the last 5 days but in reality - nope! Not a drop.
We're irrigating our 2 front beds as I was planting a few bits and bobs in them the other day and I got about 40cm down and it was dry and crumbly.
Everything is still looking lovely.
Before and after poppy. This is the first big poppy to open in the wild flower garden.
More of the wild flowers ~ this has been such a huge success. I'm hoping everything we read is true and all the seeds will just grow again next year.
The dwarf agapanthas are flowering. Our huge ones aren't yet, but do have buds coming so it won't be long. They're classified as a noxious weed in NZ, but I love them!
These are some yard long beans I planted straight into the ground about 5 days ago. They're next to the ones I planted into pots in the greenhouse about 2 months ago and these ones look way more healthy and I'm sure will catch up with the others in about a week! I must remember this for next year as there's no point in planting them inside when they do so well outside in October.
Can you see it? The teeniest tiniest courgette - these are 'goldrush'
Eggplants almost ready to go outside, I suppose I could plant them out now as it's lovely, but I'd like them to be just a tiny bit bigger.
These are Lloyds boots, I bung them on every morning when I'm still in my jammies to go and feed everything then have my morning wander around! They're much comfier than mine!
