I am going to get my best season this summer on almost everything, the only one not doing so well is again the gooseberries, after the fruit set, the saw flies ate every bit of leaf on the 2 plants (both planted in the same big pot), I am still unsure if gooseberries are a earning their place in my small garden, but I don't have any suggestions on what to replace them with.
My blackberry plant is doing very well, growing up the garage wall, I have a long line running along the length of the garage, and I have been training the plant to grow on an arch infront of my shed, behind the garage.
Friday we had the wettest day in ages, it only stopped raining for a couple of hours, the rest of the day was steady rain, the water butts are now almost full, so no complaints from me.
Saturday it was very windy, more like October than June, we also had another couple of storms, my newly planted bedding plants are looking good, getting them in the ground before the rain has worked well.
This morning is sunny, and should be a nice day, I don't have anything to do outside, I am keeping on top of everything, I've picked up all the leaves blown around from yesterday. The blossom from the tree behind my shed has covered the space between the shed and greenhouse, it looks just like confetti and smells devine.
