To start with this week lets have a look at the veggies. If you recall I dug two 8' x 4' beds in the area reclaimed from the wild and these were planted up to take the spare veg that wouldn't fit into the temporary veg bed along the west facing wall. Here is what we have now
So onto the rest of the garden. As I mentioned you can start to see the Glyphosate working on the centre area of the garden
I reckon another dose in about three weeks should see us okay and then we can start to get cracking on the vegetable beds along the bottom of this area. And whilst I might not always think that rotavators are a good thing, I shall definitely be speaking to Richard and Sally about either borrowing or hiring one for this task.
Now I hope someone out there can assist me with this next one. There is a tree by the end of the Rose Bed which doesn't really do anything exciting but it is home to a lovely old climbing rose. Thr trouble is this - it is riddled with the pox!!
However the ones that I planted up in a large pot to climb over the potting shed arch along with the runner beans (which are doing really well) were not looking too happy this week so I have now transplanted them into the border in the hope that they will start to pick up.
Elsewhere in the garden, we have the folowing new faces
That's about it. I staked some more plants that had taken a beating from the recent rains and there are sevaral plants just on the cusp of flowering, including the Verbascum hastata, Verbascum bonariensis, Centaurea and the Eryngiums.
The two long borders have now been weeded, dead headed and the soil miller has tidied them up so next week I should be able to get back to reclaiming the fruit bed.
That's all folks - see ya next week.
