Our sugar snap pea and lebanese cucumber plants have been pulled and mulched into the garden. Our cherry tomatoes show no sign of abating and we have so many ripening every day. Our beans are the same, still charging along – even more so now that I have pulled out the sugar snap pea plants.
I’ve started planting our seedlings. The peas are in as are the beetroots. I’m working hard to stop the terrible snails from committing a massacre LOL. Our biggest stand off is the carrots – I have every barrier known to man in the way and I’m hoping they survive long enough to get some sturdy growth.
We were lucky on the weekend that the hailstorm didn’t do any damage to the veggie beds. More damage was done to the trees (lost branches, leaves etc). I’m very grateful as we saw that some people had suffered major damage to their gardens.
I have learnt though that where I had planned to plant our herb garden is out of bounds. Unless I want the herbs to float away in another potential flooding!! I was calf high in fast running water at the worst point. Instead I can only look at ornamental plants and possibly some fruit trees in raised beds.
