Another wet week, tough times for gardening, but really great growth at the moment. Plants are doing well. As bad as rain is, it is great for our newly planted trees there are as happy as anything.

Vegetables are slow, fruit is doing good. Big basket of peaches went into the Woodland Walk Cafe yesterday from the Walled Gardens. Peach and Rhubarb Crumble on this weekend mmmmm.

Roses are doing really well, little bit of rain damage to the flowers but almost all of the varieties growing in Strokestown Park are old varieties and they are quite tough.

Decide that the best way to deal with the rabbits is to chase them out of the garden, picture this a line of people start at one end of the Garden with bin lids, saucepan lids etc anything that can made lots of noise and march through the garden hunting all in-front of them towards one open gate out of the garden. I will let you know how it goes.
