Friday was most notable for a very windy morning. It did quieten down during the afternoon to allow some short sunny spells with the odd light shower. Not a typical July day at all.

In the greenhouse Jimmy Nardello is on flower. This is one of our sweet peppers which don’t normally do well in the greenhouse but this year I’m making a special effort and also trying some different varieties. I suspect it’s a bit late coming into flower but I’m still hoping for a few peppers by autumn.

The cold frame still has plenty of seedlings ready for the plot or trays of seeds yet to germinate. Most of the seeds still to germinate are over wintering brassicas whilst late french beans and lettuce wait to go down to the plot. After this week’s rain preparing the plot ready for them should be a whole lot easier and quicker.
