during the week I really am delighted, and just a bit surprised, at how good it all looks full of flowers, soft fruit and vegetables.
The cosmos patch has started flowering with a mix of red/white Velouette, white Purity and an unknown variety which is white with a hint of pink.
The gladioli Cha Cha are providing a wonderful display.
The onions Sturon are looking good with many of them being around tennis ball size.
I’ve lifted a few beetroot Baby Beat that grow no bigger than golf ball size, so are easy and quick to cook, and picked the first cucumber Bush Crop.
The climbing beans are beginning to reach the top of the canes, the sweetcorn is looking good and there’s fruit forming on the tomatoes.
Back to flowers and the nasturtiums, sunflowers and viscaria are all flowering which I’ll show here next week.
I’m still still picking a few raspberries along with the first juicy, sweet blackberries.
There was some welcome, and much needed, rain overnight last Tuesday and yesterday there were plenty of light showers through the day. The coming week looks like remaining dry so I’ll be having to water round again.
Have a good week!
