I’m enjoying the sunflowers and here are two knee-high Music Box which have light-coloured centres, rather than the more common dark ones.
I’ve started picking, and eating, the first sweet corn cobs.
I’ve let the tomatoes get a bit out of hand and when I was trying to sort them out and tidy them up during the week I was surprised to see how much fruit there is on them. Here are some of the small Gardener’s Delight and a large Legend.
They need some warm sunshine to start ripening them.
Plot neighbour Trevor gave me a small plant a couple of months ago but wasn’t sure if it was a courgette or squash. It’s grown into a mound of very large leaves under which are plenty of big yellow flowers.
On Friday I found that it’s a white patty pan squash plant and here’s the first fruit. It’s about five inches diameter and a couple of inches deep at the centre.
As to what I do with it remains to be seen. Apparently they can be eaten raw or cooked in various ways. Maybe I’ll just give it away as I’m sure there’ll be more before too long.
Have a good week!
