Another warm sunny day - I've trimmed the edges of the borders, watered the pots, harvested peppers and salad leaves and sown more salad. I've been sowing salad leaves and herbs in large pots which I keep in the greenhouse away from the deer and rabbits. I harvest with scissors when they are still seedlings and this has been very successful.
Mixed parsley seedlings
Peppers, nasturtiums, verbena and basil have also done well in the greenhouse.
I have grown several different chili peppers -
Skinny - the seed came from the Heritage Seed Library.
This is a tiny pepper but very very hot
Pictured here with an overgrown courgette.
I have also grown a yellow jalapeno and 'Hot Wax'. I grew very little from seed this year as friends have kindly given me plants. Thank you everyone - especially David Grant who gave me lots of lovely sweet peas and veggies
The flower borders are colourful with calendula,
self sown evening primrose,
I have at last managed to grow an echinacea
and Colchicum - another of my favourites
