Later today it will be up to the vegetable plot to see to what extent the weeds have now taken over. Last I heard from The Sage he was sitting back enjoying a cold glass of cider, obviously not being able to wait until the hot (ok, warmish) weather arrived. May be it was a mistake buying him a few bottles of Longueville house cider (I highly recommend).
My patio still acts as the nursery as the weather means we are a few weeks behind at this stage. In the snap below are a number of sprouts, cabbages and cauliflower awaiting transportation and transplantation. There will be plenty to do this weekend, but hopefully I will be able to relax at the end of the day, take in a glass of cider myself and encourage the veggies to make up for lost time.
Finally, the news is that the swans have gone missing and there remains an egg in the nest. Trying not to read too much into this as I understand that the cygnets can only last a couple of days without food before they need to go off foraging, supervised one would assume. May not be able to hold myself back until Saturday, so if time allows will take a walk this evening when we get there. I hope I can bring good news next week, rather than a story of the foxes’ banquet.
