Now from the spectacular scenes from the Botanic Garden in Oxford to my own mini garden. May wasn't a great month for growth on my balcony. It has been mainly chilly here in southern England and the plants aren't growing much. I'm starting to get a bit worried about this years' crops, but hopefully some warmer weather will follow soon to get the plants properly growing. Also today it's a bit too autumnal weather, rainy, windy, unpleasant and more storm on the way.
My viola is giving me most joy to look at at the moment and the strawberries are doing fine, which surprises me slightly. I thought that they would be pickier. Some of the strawberry photos I have posted here are a couple of weeks old, so there has been progress since then.
Radishes were good to be harvested already, but everything else is still pretty small in size and especially the peppers don't seem to be growing at all. Also the chilli plant is having a hard time.
How are your plants doing? Have you had any successes yet?
