Nice weather, around 27°C. Since we had the last two days rain the soil is moist. It`s a good time to weed the beds. The lawn got mown again. Not all Nasturtiums (Tropaeolum majus) germinated since some of the seeds were not properly covered by the soil. So we brought in some more seeds to complete the seedings also  for the Purple Tansy (Phacelia tanacetifolium) and Red Clover (Trifolium pratense). The Opium Poppy (Papaver somniferum ) hardly germinated, but we will be patient for an other couple of weeks. The Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) and the Yellow Marigold (Calendula officinalis) are looking very promising. The blue and yellow flowers will go together very well for high contrast.

The potatoes are growing well, some variety are already blooming. King Edward loocks to be the weakest Variety so far. I guess this year will be a good potatoe year compared to last year.
