Pulled the beetroot and just laughed! I forgot I had planted the seeds in the little pods which are NOT intended for root veg so I ended up with golden baby beets and a few baby beet carrots lol

The heatwave is making my garden shine in places and showing up the rubbish in others. The flowers need cutting back and quite a few weeds to pull up. So much work and not enough energy.

Must get out there soon.

Garden Update

My garden although colourful is a mess. I haven't been able to go out there for a couple of weeks and it shows. My tomatoes are still small and green so I don't expect much there. It has been very windy with heavy rain this week with more forecast so it doesn't look like I'll get much done anytime soon. I have collected a few seeds for next year and I'm determined that the garden will be better. I am going to pull my beetroot tomorrow regardless of the weather as they need to be pickled in time for Christmas.

I hope to be planting my daffodils soon so that I have a good showing for the spring.
