Garden update

The Pea's have been planted out and seem to be doing well (meaning they haven't died yet). We realised the other day that the plants we had in the propagator (Parsley & Peas's), were both plants that do not like transplantation. So fingers are crossed (and thumbs are pressed).

Berrywise, the Gooseberries and Blackcurrants fruits are progressing well. The Tomatoes are in flower, and the fruit is starting to set on the Strawberries. The Lettuce are very healthy, and so far have not suffered from slug attacks. Incidently only the Sunflowers have been attacked so far, much to the annoyance of the Haddock Juniorette.

The Bell Peppers and Chilli plants are ok, they are just waiting to flower (the buds are there). I guess they will do better when the weather improves, just as it did yesterday. Local temperatures reached 28 deg C.

And finally, today is a Holiday in Germany, but unfortunately not for me. I have to work today, whilst the rest of the country BBQ's, relaxes and enjoys the good weather.
