I'm reasonably happy with Haddock's. Most things are looking OK, even if they're not growing as well as I'd hoped. The wet weather plays havoc with growth.
My Peppers and Aubergines are much the same size as when I planted them several weeks ago. I've sown two rows of French Beans, both of which have 'melted' in the soil; I shall sow again when it's warmer. My Courgettes are only just beginning to sprout new leaves.
Otherwise, the Onions, Strawberries, Spinach, and Tomatoes are all doing very well. The Artichokes (behind the incinerator) are all eaten, and I now await the secondary growth.
I have just recently planted out the Cavolo Nero and Swiss Chard plants, and the slugs are being kept at bay.
All the Grape Vines at Haddock's are looking good, but that can change (as it did last year).
Haddock's also has Plums, Currants, Raspberries, Apples, Figs and Cherries.
It may seem strange when living out in the country that I am growing my Toms in pots, but with a nasty Tomato disease in the soil at Haddock's, I'm obliged to grow them elsewhere. Being in big pots means I can decide exactly what they're planted in, I can keep the watering under control, and I can keep a constant lookout for any problems. I'm pleased to say they're looking very good, have no disease, and have plenty of flowers. I'm expecting a good crop.
Elsewhere, up at the barn, I notice that Boo Boo's Peach tree is covered with fruit. They are a particularly large and juicy variety, but I'm afraid he won't be here to appreciate them.
