The clover is enjoying the drought period we have had. It has meant the lawn has not been cut very frequently and I have never seen so much clover as I have this year. It is alive with bees all the time and even if it is cut down, it soon pops up again merrily.
The spinach has bolted, but I ate some and the pak choi has flowered (maybe I should have eaten that a little faster too!) My broccoli is coming on a treat and I have eaten my first potatoes. Last year I struggled with keeping control of my vegetable beds. A moment's distraction meant a sea of weeds took over. This year I have been far more careful and whilst it is by no means weed-free, I am happier with it. I allow some poppies, nasturtians and marigolds to self seed around the vegetables a bit, I like the colour and also a bit of free spirit in an otherwise regimented space.
That is it for this month's End of Month Review, an idea started by the Patient Gardener thanks Helen for making me consider by garden each month.
