Through the Garden Gate July 2022
Apologies I am late again in posting 'Through The Garden Gate' this month! I don't know where this month as gone! The garden has changed so much in month - most of the roses are over and with a heatwave and very little rain, and empty water barrel,s the garden is not looking it's best. This is the area we seem to sit out in the most of the time and if it gets too hot we retreat under the grape vine directly behind this area.
The front garden isn't suffering so much in the heat and hasn't had any watering. It looks as if we are going to have to relook at the way we garden and choose plants that thrive in the drier conditions in the future.
This year I experimented sowing my sweet peas seeds at different times. The ones that I planted in early January haven't performed as well as those I planted in April so maybe next year I will be more patient and wait until later before sowing.
The back garden isn't looking quite so lovely hopefully we will get some rain in August and it will improve!
We have been enjoying our first tomatoes from the greenhouse, a glut of courgettes, lettuce we can't eat fast enough, french beans and even have our first pumpkin, has your garden provided you with any produce this month?
