A few days ago we harvested our potatoes from the trough we had used. There were 2.5kg of lovely, smooth skinned, yummy potatoes. They taste creamy and delicious and will last us a few weeks if we keep them cool, as we don't eat an enormous amount of potatoes in Summer.
In their place we have planted leeks (the compost has been totally removed, enriched and replaced)
The garden has suffered a bit with the total lack of rain. These Hydrangeas were a beautiful purple but are now changing colour as our soil is pretty neutral. We need to do something next year to bring the purple back...
Our GS gave us a couple of sunflower seeds and the flowers are doing quite well. They obviously love the sunny weather. This one is the smallest. I'll let you know how tall they get. What's the biggest you have grown?
Today is blessedly cool and we had some rain overnight. It began around 9pm last night and, at one point during the night, it belted down. Thank heavens. Let's hope there's a little more to come as the river level at Bewdley is down to 22cm.
Tomorrow I am going to a wildlife park with the family so you can bet your bottom dollar that we will have thunderstorms and torrential rain! It never fails...lol...
I hope everyone who needs rain has had some too,
Take care x
