But I’ve been making up for it over the last week. We had a great holiday in the South of France but my crops did look a bit thirsty when we got back, especially the tomatoes which were
looking very droopy. Plenty of water and some tlc was the order of the day but it has been a challenge as work has also been very busy.
There has been some potting on, tying, staking – and of course, plenty of watering so things are looking much better now.
I’m happy with the tomato, cucumber and courgette progress – broad beans are also looking good with peas beginning to make an appearance too. I’ll do a separate update about the
peppers soon, some are looking very good but not all of them.
Still fighting the slug battle, I’ve lost a cauliflower and two lots of marigolds in spite of the beer traps and our family of frogs living in the back garden. My latest weapon is a layer of ash all round the edge of the raised bed of cabbages, let’s see if that does the trick.
So much to do, so little time…
Me too…been on travel the last week, afraid to see what I left behind
Mine have all come back again, they’re probably hardier than we think 😉
Hopefully a bit of watering and TLC and they’ll spring back. But if not – south of France is pretty worth it!
It was worth it! But everything is blooming again now with a bit of sunshine & plenty of watering 🙂
