June & July

Everything is a bit slow growing here this year but things are slowly starting to pick up.

In the polytunnel we've been picking cucumbers, Basil, coriander & salad leaves. There's now plenty of flowers on the Tomatoes, Aubergines, Chillies & Jalapeno's.

Lots of green tomatoes but no sign of red ones yet.

We've dug up the first earlies & were pleased with the results 30lb 9oz, I think I paid £2.39 for the seed potatoes.

We're eating a lot of Turnips, Kale, Chard and Broad beans and the red Pak choi is just about ready.

But the peas & runner beans are slow I've only picked a handful of peas & have only just got flowers on the runner beans.

The Courgettes, Pumpkins & Marrows have flowers but no sign of any fruit yet but the Pattypans are now showing.
