Voting and rubbish plants

Even if you never usually vote, today is an historic day SO PLEASE VOTE! You will probably never get another chance. If you are still undecided, ask yourself the question "if you were voting to join, would you do so?"

I don't know what is wrong with my spinach and beetroot plants this year. They have their seedling leaves and some have one set of true leaves but they are all stuck there! Normally, they romp away.

I don't usually have any luck with radish as they either go to seed or get eaten by beetles. This year though, the first ones sown have already been eaten by us for a change, and so far, the second lot are growing well, although they are getting nibbled, by slugs I presume.

The peony flowers have all rotted due to the rain and all in all, everything looks not very well. We managed to miss the first batch of storms but will probably get the next lot.

All this rain looks like it may have washed a lot of the food and goodness out of the soil.

Time to give whole garden a feed methinks.
