Thursday was cool and windy. The temperature only made it up to 14.9°C (58.8°F) making it the lowest high temperature this far into June in the last six years.
On the plot more tender plants refuse to grow. Our second sowing of carrots has germinated very poorly and we’re thinking of trying another sowing on another part of the plot. Our outdoor tomato plants aren’t showing any signs of growing and to make matters even worse our climbing French beans and runner beans have been devastated by slugs.
Fortunately it wasn’t all bad news on the plot as we had a our first little harvest of strawberries from our newly planted bed.
The ones above are Fenella and we also picked a few Vibrant as well. How did they do in the taste test - well both were delicious but perhaps Fenella took the honours by a short taste bud.
