This week I’ve been helping out on the farm, first off last Saturday afternoon with an emergency caesarean section calving, then a few days later with the corn cart. In my garden I have also been harvesting. The beans have dried up, but the greenhouse is in full swing.
First photo is of my tomatoes (S. Pierre). They have been enjoying the heat and are the largest ones I’ve ever grown. Better still, they are very tasty too!
Second photo is of my Sweetcorn (Goldcrest) (the camera didn’t do the green leaves justice) but it is the kernels that are important. I had eight plants which I got in the ground very early.
Third photo goes to some Evening Primrose, these self seed all over. I am trying to grown a pink variety, but they are still seedlings and the pesky white-fly have been feasting on them, so I’m not sure how they will survive.
Next photo is of some purple Penstemon, last week I featured pink ones, but these are very much a different shade. These are under the sunflowers and have been shaded from the scorching sun.
The Crocosmia have suffered in the dry, most of their leaves are brown and crisp, but I still have a reasonable amount of flowers despite the lack of rain.
Final photo goes to my cucumbers. These are just some of the fruit from this plant, it is enjoying the heat and humidity of the greenhouse, where it can rampage around. Much better than taking over my conservatory where I grew them in the past.
