A retrospective post about how the garden looked on 26th May.
The leeks remain unchanged, still looking like blades of grass and starting to be overtaken by grass and weeds. I’m a bit fearful of weeding them, I’m sure to pull out a lot of them in the process, so I’m going to leave them alone but as a result I’m not very hopeful of a worthwhile crop either. Mental note: next year plant in seed trays and then transplant when larger, that’ll give them a head start above the weeds.
The broccoli seedlings are starting to make themselves known and showing above the weeds:
Since this photo was taken I have weeded this area and the broccoli seedlings are looking healthy, I have lost a few, but still plenty to give a good crop.
Onions aren’t developing much, so nothing to report there.
Onto fruit, not a huge development, strawbs look plentiful, raspberries not showing as fruit just yet, but the biggest development is the Damson tree, we have fruit:
Ah, in this photo you can also see where I planted a few spare seed potatoes in the soil pile, they are growing well there too.
I’m planning on growing some lettuce too, I might be taking on too much, but I’m sure I’ll cope.
