the sugarsnap pea has thrown out some more flowers so hopefully get a few more bites to eat in the next week or so, before the season is over altogether.
I didn't plant a big lot out in the garden, theres pickings for a
few more meals , some broccoli still to come and still picking a few
sugarsnap peas and broad beans. very surprisingly the courgette and
pumpkin never did anything, somewhat eaten by things, but they really
didn't grow. I have some idea in my head that the tenants may have used
weedkiller, though this would be two years ago, maybe its lurking in the
soil causing it to not be good for growing... a lot of things did a
kind of half dying then recovering, then took ages to put on growth so
something is not quite right. The weather has been up and down wildly in
temperature too, so that may have set things back and caused uneven
I deliberatley planted a little bit of each thing, not wanting to be overwhelmed and put myself off the responsibility of growing a lot of food. It was nice , early on, to be pottering in the greenhouse even though outside wasn't good weather. I did mean to sow several things sucesionally to keep the eating season going longer, but whenever I made plans it would be vile weather or I was too tired from work.
