And the rains have come in Fulham, it seems like we’ve had days and days of wetness which is good for my crops (and unfortunately the weeds as well).
And with Plot Inspections just around the corner, lots of focus upon weeding and tidying up.
The French Beans are slowly establishing with the rains and starting to climb up the string frame.
Rhubarb, Raspberries & Strawberries at the front of the Plot.
Weeded the borders and watching the fruit grow: Soon I should be able to pick some strawberries.
Courgette flowers are forming so should have my first fruit shortly.
Left: Giant Pumpkin transferred onto the Plot, and Right: Pumpkins doing OK
So two different Pumpkins have been transferred onto the Plot now. The Giant one looked rather large after growing from seed at home but now it’s in a raised bed, it seems to see what happens, and whether they shall be ready for Halloween, we shall have to see!
And for the first time, I have Broad Beans: nearly ready for harvesting.
My Greshen Runner Beans have been planted directly into the ground. I’m a little late with these but hopefully these will germinate with all the rain and keep growing. Also going to prepare some at home in the Greenhouse as a back-up as the slugs are active on my plot.
I love the colourful flowers on my Potatoes: Of course, it means they are forming so soon I should be able to dig up the first harvest.
A few beautiful Poppies after one single plant. Certainly, the Bees are loving these brightly coloured additions to the Plot.
