This month The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful comes from my veg plot.
I’ve also been harvesting peas as well as lettuce and other salad leaves. Hurrah for my delicately proportioned veg plot!
Slugs and snails. It appears that, yet again, my runner beans are not going to be successful.
This leaf is from the only bean plant that still has the luxury of leaves. The other plants are stems stuck in the ground, and even those stems have been scoured by snail teeth until no goodness remains. I need to get my act together on the snail front, and it is mostly snails unfortunately or I’d have used one of the slug devouring nematodes.
Some of the veg is beautiful in itself but my veg plot is also home to some flowers:
Chamomile is a favourite herb of mine. I dry it and use it in summery bath salts. It works surprisingly well as an incense too (maybe with some benzoin and lavender flowers and rose petals to make my favourite summer incense).
And no veg plot of mine would be complete without pot marigold!
