Yesterday was an even madder weather day than most we have had recently. I began swathed in waterproofs and wellies but still got so wet that there was water inside my watch. Then the rain stopped and it got very cold so I swapped my wellies for winter boots and put the heating on (one word: JULY!), then the cloud thinned enough that we could see the outline of a strange bright circle in the sky, and I swapped my winter boots for canvas shoes (with socks) and ventured into the soggy garden with Tiny Boy.
There we found everything in abundance. Abundant weeds, abundant long lush grass, and most importantly abundant yumminess.
Two kinds of mange tout.
A small but perfectly formed courgette and one pod of broad beans from the plant grown by Tiny Boy at pre-school.
New potatoes from the volunteer plant that was growing among the parsnips, and the first onion.
And lovely flowers. Enough now to cut some for the house.
The thick cloud is back but it is not raining so I am about to venture forth again to tackle some of the abundant weeds. I hope you are enjoying your garden.
