Bought a load of plants from the garden centre yesterday - lobelia, geraniums other ia's and ium's .... can't remember the names. Pretty though!

It's a bit late in the season, but these are all summer to autumn perennials. My garden is really a May/June garden, so lots of greenery now, but not much colour, so this afternoon I'm going planting.

The runner beans are prolific - we did have a load of peas, but the chickens got in the veg patch. Toms coming on well & two lots of spuds so far. Lettuces are rubbish. I reckon it was last year's seed - and Ron keeps saying he's watered when he hasn't.

Cucumbers are like marrows. Flowers on the melons & peppers..... will I get any fruit?
