After a week of hot weather the great British weather has not disappointed and the drizzle has rolled in again, just in time for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend celebrations. While the weather may not be conducive to the picnics, walks and outdoor activities we had planned, it is great for the garden which is literally exploding into colour before our eyes. Last year I bought lots of chives for their culinary uses as well as their lovely purple flowers. Last year we never so much as got a flower head off them (although we ate loads of the onion-y flavoured stems with new potatoes and butter) but this year they are full of flowers and are attracting the bees in droves.
Also doing well are the strawberries which are growing well, unlike the peas and courgettes which have been attacked by various little beasts and have been reduced to little stumps in the ground.
At least it doesn’t rain in the potting shed, which is where we will likely be headed later on today to do a second sowing.
