The plants will play.
Time for a holiday. I'd checked and double-checked the weather forecast as we planted out as much as we possibly could so in the event of a heatwave, plants wouldn't be forgotten when the neighbour came to water them, and check on the hens.
Just days before we were due to leave for NL, I was gifted a Brugmansia from a lovely lady whose home goes by the name of Moss Cottage. I have never grown one before, but I have dreamed of owning one. This one shall have creamy coloured 'Angels Trumpets' all being well. I planted it into a larger container along with a couple of Calendula's to ward off whitefly.
And a week later,
Everything except the Dahlia's managed to find a home. They've managed to keep their cool though in a relatively shady part of the 'working area' beside the greenhouse.
It's amazing just how much can change in just one week. My neighbour as promised has been harvesting the salad leaves to keep it from bolting. Now though the other leaves are ready to eat.
Staying in the greenhouse, we have our second batch of Butternut Squash. We eat tonnes of this stuff, but I've not had very much luck with attempts to grow my own. I get a to the potting on stage, and they tend to just collapse on me.
