Despite the washout summer Leafyleith has been quite productive this month. I think it has rained almost every day for July and August – so much for the warm, hot summer the forecasters promised.
As you can see, the tomatoes have been quite fruitful. But I did have a bit of a disaster earlier in the month. I went off for a holiday and didn’t bother getting anyone to water the plants. I don’t know why I believed it, but the forecast said it was going to rain all week, so on return everything was rather withered and one of the tomato plants had completely collapsed.
Other highlights this month have been the flowers.
Dead chuffed with my sunflowers, which made a rapid transformation in about 3 weeks. From this:
I’m definitely going to do them again next year. Along with sweetpeas and marigolds.
Looking back at these photos, it’s hard to believe that that was just a couple of weeks ago. It’s now getting colder and darker earlier at night which is a bit of a bummer. I fear that’s it for this year. Fingers crossed for a crisp, sunny autumn.
