Oh, What a Leek!

I grew leeks from seed last year, probably around March or April. They were planted out in late spring and by January of this year they were ready to harvest. I did enjoy some of them, but for some reason unknown to me, I decided to let them go to seed.

The bees have been having a field day.

At this stage they are beginning to topple over, so I’ll clear them out to make way for something else.


The July Garden

Since last Saturday, it’s been ferociously hot. I’ve been up to my tonsils watering. Yes, I’ve made a note-to-self. There will be less pots next year. What was I thinking?

Anything over 25°C is very uncomfortable for me, and I’d be inclined to think that if plants could count they agree that 25 is enough.

Regular readers of my GrowWriteRepeat blog will be able to continue reading my updates here. Of course, they don’t yet know that it’s here, so I’ve a wee bit of homework to do. As my Welsh gardener friends would way, a diddy bit of work to do.

Slán go fóill,
