the house themometer is up to its top temperature of 30ºC/85ºF, and it seems cooler in here than outside. The hose has been on in the garden since 10am, the vegetables need it and for the first time this year I am watering the flower beds.
this carnation, Fenbow Nutmeg, has the most amazing smell of cloves. I grew them from seed last year.
Phacelia tanacetifolia, planted as a green manure, its very pretty so I think it can have a bigger patch next year.
Harvesting: the last Red Duke of York potatoes, one small handfull of black currants, carrots, broad beans, french beans, snap peas, peas, lettuce, onions, shallots, courgettes, cabbage, chard, turnips. I am still waiting for a tomato!
