Well it doesn't seemed to have stopped raining here on and off for more than a week now. What was a lovely area for the pigs now seems to have turned into a mud bath, as you can see -
Now we are on light sandy soil here, and although marshland, I don't think I've ever seen it this wet. Am feeling quite sorry for our two little pigs, but they have got a new straw bed to keep them warm -
and yes, that is the two of them in the background, not a picture! It's their window, which I really should see if I can close now to keep out even more of the wet stuff we are due over the next few days.
I have been harvesting onions and shallots, both of which have given us a fabulous harvest this year.
But as I rather left the veg patch to its own devices somewhat during the hot weather - I don't do hot weather, I have a large job on my hands harvesting them -
Ooops! But I'm getting there. And I suppose am killing two birds with one stone in a way - weeding and harvesting. Oh well, at least I'm honest about my gardening techniques - or lack of sometimes!
On the plus side, my carnations in the greenhouse are absolutely fabulous as you can see, the perfume in there is just divine -
But more on the carnations at a later date - watch this space, keeping it under my hat for the time being.
