The poppies have attracted bees . . .
. . . but now they've gone to seed.
A bounty of blackcurrants?
Here is this year's veg (fruit?) plot.
So . . . I pulled up some poppies, transplanted some tomatoes, harvested (!) a dish of blackcurrants and pruned the bushes. They're in large pots, but I don't expect miracles. Time will tell. I checked my compost pot and it's full of worms working hard. Then I shifted containers around - a few quite large, most small and mostly full of flowering plants.
There's a noticeable difference in leaf colour between the tomatoes which I planted in the ground two weeks ago, and the ones which were in the trough until yesterday.
