Back from Holiday

Just got back from 2 weeks away. What is the first thing that any gardener does when they get back home after a long absence? Stuff has grown! I think there was some rain a couple of days ago (well of course, it's Wimbledon!) but it is bone dry. I lost a couple of things in the greenhouse, it is difficult in such scorching hot weather to rely on others to water enough. Lost one of my Gardeners World chilli plants - the big one called "Joes Long" I only have 3 left now in a growbag.

Sweet potatoes are doing OK, they have bushed up quite a bit - though I was expecting them to ramble.

Thanks for encouraging comments to a new blogger, I love reading and comparing notes.
