But to make up for it I went and took some pics. the ground is so soaked that for digging it's a bit treacherous. Anything green is going great guns though and even the lamb's lettuce this year has taken off, first time.
I am a bit sick as caterpillars (apparently from Cabbage White butterflies) are eating my sprouts. I had to try and squich 'em all, disgusting:
The cosmos flowers are very pretty, even though they fall over, and you can see how the nasturtiums are feral - still, I am leaving them as they rot pretty well once the frost comes and I just have to dig them in to make a good green manure. They stop other weeds growing so all in all it's a good compromise.
I like it when nature surprises you. As I tidied up all the stakes etc left on the plot, I came across a crop of rocket, growing wild. It was delicious!
The last of the dahlias probably: I have been thrilled with them and hopefully next year they will do even better.
