Well I’ve been caught by the frost. My bizzie lizzies were left out by accident and they’ve shrivelled….and it’s a good thing I’ve sown some more cucm
bers and green beans as well. This is take 2 on the cucumbers. Serves me right of course for not keeping things under wraps. Apparently it was the coldest May night for 15 years last night and I believe it. Forever full of optimism though I keep checking the weather forecast and maybe, just maybe there is a little bit of an increase in the temperature by the end of the week.
Meanwhile Elsie’s friends are scheduled to arrive on the 22nd. Oh we need fence. I’ve got such a big area to fence though I’ve been looking everywhere for the best bargain. I suspect it’ll be chain link and then at least Elsie and her little ex battery pals can enjoy the summer if we get some.
Plant shopping and digging today with an eye on late summer colour for a client planning a party in September. We’ve had some great autumns in recent years so let’s hope that this year’s no exception – maybe it’ll make up for the spring.
