Wolds Diary: Vegetables in the garden as the weather turns warm

It seems as the weather gets warmer that I’m getting busier. The rain was rather welcome, at least for me, as my garden was sadly in need of it. I have managed to plant out several climbers and some more vegetables. This means that everything else is growing at speed as well, the grass, the hedgerows and of course, the weeds. The blossom on the fruit trees has gone and the foliage is thickening up. The dogs have had differing opinions about the rain. Looroll hates it, and Boo loves it. The others are not bothered. I have been taking them out in the early mornings.
