Wet, Wet, Wet....


All in the garden is WET, WET, WET!! I can never remember such a wet “back-end”. There are still parsnips and beetroot in the ground, the broccoli is doing well (in its cages) and I have pruned the soft fruits. When the rain finally stops there is still the job of a final weeding and rotavation to tidy up the soil for winter.


Time to do other things rather than gardening! Check out the Gardener's Thoughts section or the Book recommendations of the website for instance for a nice comfortable read!
