Well I didn’t believe that we would finally get all that sun. But hey, whos complaining ! Probably somone somwhere , but never mind that. Yes this is the first year that I have grown lady’s finger from seed successfully, lets see how it does. We have tons of Cavlo Nero Kale growing and Texil greens . They are tasty cut and come again greens, with a mild garlic taste.
Only the root crops are a bit slow. I thought it a good idea not to add any soil amendments but yet again this has proved a bad move. Relying on previous years compost has not worked. We could have used compost from Vicky’s digester in Wexford. She brings up bags of it for the garden . We may need to add some to the garlic too. They are quite slow, somthing not right with the soil.
Someone found a flat worm in the tunnel a week ago. Thats the first one I’ve seen thank goodness ! Folks here are still enjoying the gardening experience, the warm weather is making gardeners out of everyone.
I believe rain is on it’s way, tomorrow. The sun is due a returne visit next week.
