The arrival of the summer months has also meant rain! At first I was relieved as we had had such a dry spring but then it got windy and then it just didn't seem to stop raining! Since beginning flower farming I have become even more weather obsessed than I was before. The plants have coped well - they have enjoyed a good soak and luckily we managed to get netting up in time to support them in the winds - even the Ammi which is over 8 feet tall now. The slugs have feasted but luckily not too many casualties. The sweet peas are growing and flowering beautifully, the foxgloves have been magnificent and the self seeded wildflower patch is in full flower. I've also been harvesting some Allium seed heads for drying for arrangements later in the year.
