Flaming June on the Veg Patch

Here’s a quick pictorial look at some of the June’s garden action at The Secret Acre.

After a slow start, due to the weird Spring weather, June finally delivered some warm sunshine allowing the garden to burst into life.

The seedlings came out of the greenhouse and cold frames to be planted out in the veg beds, allowing the tomatoes and aubergines etc to colonise the greenhouse. The potatoes were earthed up and the fruit cage started to show promise.

The patch of annual Calla Lilies by the greenhouse always looks its best in June.

Looks like we will soon be enjoying a good crop of gooseberries this year.
