Slow Down … It’s Summer

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it increasingly difficult to drag myself away from my garden these days. Early in the morning, the air is cool and the plants look gorgeous. The long stretch of warm weather has made everything in my allotment garden explode. Even though it was only planted at the very end of May, I’ve already been able to harvest lots of greens and the beans, zucchini and tomatoes are just starting to come along.

Ornamental gardens are at their summer height – colourful and lush – including the plants transferred from my old garden to my deck.

While this newsletter encourages you to think about next season’s gardening, do take time to just sit back and enjoy the beauty and bounty you’ve already created.
