I arrive home from a weeks holiday and the first thing I do is run down the garden to check on my patch of dirt.
Wow – hasn’t everything grown!!
The runner beans are halfway up the poles – the broad beans pods are a good six inches long (so hubby tells me) and the peas and potatoes are flourishing.
The nettles are doing really well too. Dandelions and hogweed have sprouted from nowhere – How on earth does hogweed get to be so big in only a week? It certainly wasn’t there when I went on holiday! And there’s loads of it!
And that looks suspiciously like bindweed chasing the runner beans up their poles.
I like the poppies though so they can stay.
What better way to spend a holiday Monday?
