I hope every one is enjoying Summer as much as I am.. Here in the UK the weather is good .. High temperatures with a mixture of rain is good growing weather.
So here is my picture Update..
This year has been a great year for loganberries.. Last year we let the new shoots grow as they were cut back the year before.. we tied them high to a frame and then after flowering we netted them to stop the birds from eating them I have had around 8 punnet’s off and still there are more to be picked
Remember these Peas I rescued from the main row which didn’t do so well?
Well this is how they look now, the peas pods are filling out and in about a week I think we may have our first crop of peas
Above you can see the wired row of the second rows we planted of peas.. they haven’t done as well as last years crops, a bit hit and miss. After the rain we saw the prints of a pigeon had got under the mesh and had enjoyed taking his pick.. But that’s gardening, You win some and lose some.. 🙂
The courgettes are doing well too.. even though the leave have slight mildew due to the humid weather, I have had some lovely little courgettes off which I have used raw in salads which you can see better below
Here is the later beetroot we planted which was just weeded and thinned out.. the other rows watered are two rows of carrots and leeks .We are already pulling beetroot which we use in salads and make a delicious smoothie drink with in the morning which we have at breakfast.
Now this is my pride and joy.. its only small at the moment you can see hubby’s thumb.. and we only have two.. We set the seeds but out of many they didn’t germinate ..
The broccoli too are doing great
Here is what we harvested yesterday
The flowers are doing well, except we have lots of black fly on the Dahlia’s
And here are the sweet peas
And arrange on the hearth
Next time I will be sharing my Home Garden blooms..
Enjoy your Summer.
