This Week On The Plot

Although I have been to the plot every day this week today all I have done is open the green house door first thing in the morning, water anything that needs it and then return in the evening to close the green house door.  Today I did manage to tidy and weed some of the raised beds, dig up the flat leaf and curly parsley which has been a complete failure and harvest the first of the Blue Lake beans and Little Gem lettuces.

The Karma Irene dahlias are looking really good, this picture snapped on my phone doesn’t really show them at their best.  I’m hoping there may still be some for the Autumn Show, category 48, any cultivar, 3 blooms.

And Derek pruned the gooseberry bushes after picking the rest of the fruit.

This is another picture taken on John Morris’s plot of a chicory plant.  I can’t seem to find out much information about it but flowers appear every morning and are gone by dusk. It’s very pretty and the bees seem to love it.

Perhaps if you know any more you can tell me in the comments.

    I’ve only been pottering the past few days. Sadly my three dahlias got badly slugged and haven’t recovered. I grow chicory for the flowers but don’t get them in profusion like that so perhaps they’re a different variety. xx

      I pelleted the dahlias so no damage.

    Glad Derek didn`t kick the camera and tripod over, love the chicory flowers
