salad days

This year's first salad from the garden - chard, lettuce, spinach. Nice to be out there picking. Everything growing like mad, can see it change each day. There was good soaking rain this morning, so no need to water tonight, though am starting to battle against the slugs in earnest. Potatoes look v happy. Peas are twisting up sticks. Put in beans - too many beans, and still some to go in...

BT's pumpkin plant is bigger than mine.

Bought some sweet pea plants and some cosmos from the neighbour's plant stall. I have nowhere to put them. Also have 2 little alpine strawberry plants to find a shady, damp spot for.

I mowed the grass the day before yesterday. So glad I did after the rain today.
