Short watering visit where all the plants got a good soaking to compensate for the long period of time with no rain. I also got the small number of strong shallots that we pickle planted. There probably won’t be enough for this year to use but they will be saved for next year.
It’s actually not looking too bad up there at the moment despite the lack of rain. The broad beans, peas and potatoes are already showing and we had our first asparagus spears earlier this week.
