Managed to do quite a bit in the garden today. The plan was to do it yesterday, and perhaps head over to see
I podded some more broadbeans, which I am probably going to have some of for my tea with some broccoli and noodles. I have a lot of broccoli on my hands at the moment, as it started to flower, so I cut the remaining heads – it is still very tasty, once sprouted, but if I left it longer, it would go to seed. Now I have cut the heads off, the broccoli plants should form side shoots – broccoli spears.
The sugar snap peas are in flower, so I should have peas soon.
A week or so ago, I thinned out my pear tree, reducing each group of 4-5 fruit to the 2 strongest ones. This ensures good-sized fruit, and is already paying off – the pears are plumping up nicely.
So while all this rain has been a pain, it is definitely benefiting the garden!
