… on how the edible garden is growing.
We've been eating the mange-tout for about a week now, picking every day.
I planted them around the other side of the frame aswell. Both sides are at the same stage of growth even though I planted the second side 2 weeks later than the first. So much for succession planting. The broad beans have now started to develop pods.
We are still eating our way through the potatoes and the onions are fattening up. I'm sure I could start eating them once my shop bought ones are finished.
At last the corn is starting to grow properly. In front is the garlic.
Sweet peas are taking off up the second frame along with the climbing beans.
I wouldn't go under there puss!
The asparagus is being allowed to grow but I still harvest one or two spears every now and then.
There must be over a hundred bunches of grapes on the vine. I've pruned it again today as it was escaping out of the roof window.
Come on the tomatoes. I'm afraid they are being over shadowed by the vine.
The chives are putting on a pretty show and poppies are springing up everywhere.
I must watch the strawberries now they have started to ripen.
Check done, weeding done. All is well on the home food front.
