It has been cooler & fresher over the last few days, but it was still a lovely evening at the Hill.
When I arrived I saw just how much everything likes this weather – the beans racing up the poles & the squash have dinner-plate leaves.
As I dug up the last of the POTATOES (dunluce), novice neighbour Jody arrived, & he cut courgettes – round, yellow & green, & we chatted as I planted out the last of the LEEKS where the new potatoes had been.
The GARLIC has now got a bad dose of rust, so I dug up the thirty good sized bulbs, & they are now drying on the bench here at home, then I turned to picking PEAS (gladstone & stephens) & BROAD BEANS (barry plot 19 & crimson flowered).
These are all pretty much near the end of the run, but there’s more pea varieties to come, & the final batch of broad beans (witkiem manita) are in flower.
