“See how my garden grows”.
I have planted two more courgettes because often plants get powdery mildew and peter out before the season has finished, so by planting more latter, I hope to prolong the season.
I planted peas and supported them with bamboo canes criss crossed. I put in snow peas (flat pods that you eat) and ordinary peas (that you pod). They are mixed in together and planted too closely, they are difficult to harvest. I won’t do that again. I’ll plant just one variety and space them according to the instructions on the packet. The snow peas haven’t got a lot of flavour, but are nice for something different.
The red onions are looking grunty but I think they have a way to go yet. I poked my finger in the soil to feel round the bulb and it’s still quiet small even though the tops look big. I have been “stealing” some of the leaves to put in salads. Yum! We’ve had a good feed of radishes and I have sown more seed a couple of times. They’re a fast crop.
The carrots and beetroot are coming along nicely and I have sown more of those too, for successive harvesting. We like eating the young beetroot leaves in salads and the bigger ones steamed, tastes like spinach.
