We lost a couple of young sprout plants to root fly but the remainder are coming along fine.The turnips have been a huge success, lasting without going hollow. We will certainly grow the same kind again. The first sowing of runners look fine and the second are coming through. The french beans.... well there has been an on going battle between man and mole with those! Each night the mole uproots them and each morning they get replanted. This has been going on for several weeks now but I think the mole has finally backed down. He is now burrowing his way along the edge of my outdoor tomatoes! The french beans have survived and are flowering, just not as good as they would have been if left in peace.
We have finally succumbed to temptation with the rhubarb. It is best not to pick it in its first year, but it seems such a waste ! It was lovely.
All the greenhouse plants are doing well. A couple of tomatoes have an unidentified problem....see photos below. One looks as if though it's split, but I have been careful with the watering and it is only one tomato. The second - I don't know, again just the one fruit.
The peppers have so many fruit on each plant, I am wondering if I should remove some. It goes against the grain but I do think in this case it will be for the best.
The melons have really got going now so I must look to see how to tie them in.
Hopefully with a little more rain and not too much slug damage the garden will continue to do OK.
