How are things growing and doing in your container garden this month? Are you getting much to pick and eat yet?
Here in Newcastle it has been overcast a lot, persistently windy, very wet and cold at night. My French and runner beans that were recently put out are struggling (they hate the cold and the wind) and the tomatoes have rather stalled.
These tomatoes are in good compost - they are just unhappy because of the cold, which I think makes it hard for them to get all the nutrients they need (hence the yellow leaves). Hopefully they’ll come round in warmer weather.
Better news is that most of the herbs are happy and healthy, and we are eating a lot of herby salads at the moment - add handfuls of mint, oregano, parsley, chives and tarragon.
Here is some oregano, savory, lemon verbena, hot lips salvia and lemon thyme.
