|Spring onion seeds|
The spring onions I let go had seeds ready for sowing so sow I did. I haven't been planting much lately. It has been too hot and dry but even the smallest shower gives a gardener hope and something has to go in the ground. I also planted some more beans- Climbing Princess- and some rocket. The self-sown versions are all powering on so I hope the cultivated ones can too.
|Hungarian Black chilli|
Chillies are flowering and most of the plants have some fruit to pick. Not the jalapenos, they are behind. This variety of chilli, Hungarian Black, is like a Russian roulette chilli. Some are hot some are not, just have to take your chances. Well that is how it manifests in my garden anyway. A bit of fun in the kitchen. I always think that when the conditions are harsh, the chillies are hotter so I do sometimes neglect the chillies a little just to turn up the heat.
|? Spider lily ?|
I have this mystery flower too. My parents gave me the bulb which they got from my aunt and it is anyone's guess where she got it from. I think it is a spider lily of some sort. I forgot I planted it until it flowered. It's quite pretty and I hope it continues to thrive. I'll leave it alone, it's enjoyed that treatment thus far.
Today's jobs. First thing a cup of tea and then we will be gathering the sheep to see how they are. I'm hoping our ride-on mower will be ready to be picked up from the menders because the 'lawn' is ready for it. Mulching, I have a nice bug bale of straw to spread. And best of all, doing whatever fine work I like because my reading glasses are excellent.
