Once again I am starting the season off full of enthusiasm, ok I know it's a bit late but every thing is a month late this year anyway. I went to the car boot sale yesterday and got a few runner bean plants, broad beans and peas. I have planted them in pots and drenched them in garlic tea to try to keep the slugs at bay.
To make garlic tea take a few cloves of garlic and crush then cover with boiling water and leave to cool. When cold dilute and spray over plants. Do this weekly or as needed. I am still testing to see if it works but it is meant to be a stimulate for the plants any way.
I also got a couple of tomato plants and a chilli plant for the window sill. I wanted some courgettes as well but apparently it's too late for them, good job I planted some seeds a few days ago!

At last we are having a summer! The sun has been shining for nearly two weeks now and the garden is loving it. The Aquilegas are a mass of purple and the bees are busy buzzing from plant to plant.
And lastly Smudge and Finn enjoying the sun...just what my garden is all about.
