May was a mixed month here in the Midlands of England. We had weeks of torrential rain, and a lot of gazing out of the window, wondering when we would be able to get out in the garden.
Then came the snow, and hail.
However, the sun was shining for our village plant sale, where we donated our surplus veggie plants, raised lots of money for our community library and returned with a lovely haul 🙂
Then, finally, the sunshine arrived, and everything burst into life …
… and we celebrated our first radish crop in our new veggie plot.
We have been travelling in Norfolk for the first half of June (more on that soon) and I’m now busy getting the garden in order, as everything has gone a bit wild in the sudden heatwave. There are cabbages, strawberries, pickling onions and herbs waiting to be collected today 🙂
