Due to last month being the wettest June in the UK on record and July following in the same footsteps it’s no surprise that not much in the way of progress has been made in the vegetable garden.
Thankfully, this weekend offered us some fine weather and a chance to carry on with our plans.
After looking around at the ready-made sheds that were available locally Mr S decided that he would have a go at making the potting shed himself.
He managed to complete the frame and base which will make up the potting shed and covered seating area, hopefully it won’t be too long now untill our garden tools have somewhere to call home!
Elsewhere in this part in the garden the soggy vegetable beds are starting to dry up a little. We have already had success with our potatoes, harvesting them as we need them to ensure that they are fresh and the quantity of strawberries has surpassed previous years.
We are currently picking a pudding basin full every other day, however due to the high rainfall they aren’t lasting very well once picked and so we seem to be having an awful lot of strawberry smoothies at the moment.
The other vegetables are slowly coming on but what they really need now is some sunshine to give them a boost – they’re not the only ones
