making the best of things
last week, the slugs ate most of the lettuce - so the late french beans had a space to be planted out into. this week, blight has tried to destroy the tomato plants, so we have odd gaps here and there where tomatoes have been pulled out. right on cue, a seed catalogue has turned up, full of things to sow this month and even in September - they're actually selling a french bean that can be set now and fruit by next month. I have enough bean plants and no space so won't try them, but certainly I'm tempted by late season turnips and carrots.
