I have never seen so many bees on one lavender plant before, and I was even more delighted it was my two tone lavender plant. It is all looking good at Plot 45. Unlike Plot 11, Oh my goodness, you would not think it had the grass cut recently. It is so overgrown and looks really, really unkempt. I am embarrassed of it. So embarrassed that I could not bare to take a photo of it. It looks like we don’t care about this plot, and we do. The grass cutting will have to wait until next weekend, as we have commitments with family this week, but it is going to need more than the grass cut, it needs a serious makeover. I know whose going to be on her knees next week.
But it’s not all bad, the broad beans at plot 11 are flowering well, there was sign of some baby pods
and the raspberries, well look at them
But the Brassicas: mainly cabbages have been ravaged once again by the slugs. My fault really, normally I cover them with recycled bottle cloches, until they are strong, but D has nicked all my bottles for building the wigwam canes, that the poor little Brassica plants have been left exposed and had to fend for themselves, only to be defeated by the mighty fat slug. There is hardly any sign of the plant except for its veins. They will have to be dug up too. Fortunately, I do have some more Brassica plants that take their place, but I am going to wait until they have grown up a little more, as I do not want them to share the same fate as their older siblings.
