I was rudely woken this morning by my next door neighbour's workmen. He's a good neighbour but he'd forgotten to tell me that he was getting his roof prepped for solar panels. In other words, 6 guys all shouting at 8am to be heard over jet washers and a generator blasting gunk off the roof. Now my driveway is full of said gunk and mucky water. I managed to move my car out on to the road before it was covered too. They've promised to clean up at the end of the day...
So I changed my plans for the morning and went to the allotment to water the polytunnel. I took Emma with me as she was scared of the noise 🐶
The plot is starting to flourish. I've got some gorgeous wild campion flowers hidden in the nettles but there are loads down the side of the rugby club too.
So pretty on a dull morning!
It's been very hot here over the weekend, around 22C so I've managed to potter in the back garden in bursts. It's all finally coming together. My DIL has now joined the ranks of saving sad plants and got 12 pot marigolds reduced to 88p!! We potted them up and added some of them to the potting table display. She also got 4 Asiatic lilies for £1 😂
I've tidied out my mini greenhouse by sorting all the trays and pots. I've only got one shelf of seedlings now.
There are 3 types of pumpkins/winter squash, cucumbers and a couple of very slow glowing tomatoes. I'll plant a few more peas and things so I have a successions of veggies.
I'm glad I planted this rose at the allotment. I've been looking at my garden and thinking about which plants I'll want to take with me when I move. Obviously I won't strip the garden but I've spent a lot of effort in getting the plants to this stage so I'll take bits of things and pot them up in the Autumn. I'm hoping to buy a wee cottage/bungalow with a garden but I'll put more flowers on the plot any way as it helps with the biodiversity 🐝🐞🐜🐛
P.S. Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post about my hair! 😊
