how my garden grows

April 19, 2012 at 11:22 am Leave a comment

Returning from sunshine in South Devon the weather changed somewhat in Wiltshire…my potatoes, neatly planted in old kitchen bins, have started throwing shoots…the strawberry plants are in flower. However with the heavy rain which started with a vengance on the day of the nationwide hose pipe ban, is flooding my crop! I’ve drained them and brought them into the warmth and dry of the conservatory to join the sweetpeas and lettuce and tomato seedlings which are itching to get outside. Not until the deluge ceases! The newly planted laburnum seedling is thriving at the bottom of the garden, soon to blot out the ugly fence where nothing grows as the soil is too flinty and poor. I hope the soaring 20’s of 2 weeks ago was not our only Summer!
