Mange-tout - any day now one of these flowers will form a green pod. I'm watching out for it.
The courgette plants have settled in and I will be picking as soon as one is big enough.
It will take a little longer for the broad beans but the tops have been pricked out and there's no sign of black fly.
I shall wade may way through the strawberry patch and some may even make it into the house. Perhaps I should make some jam.
Now I don't know what these are. I sowed a half empty packet which had no name on it. I thought they were lettuce ...
but I think I'm wrong. I'm not going to start eating until I know what they are. Any ideas?
The corn has started to grow after a very cold start. We put them in the ground too early and the weather didn't help them. We had a bumper crop last year. I hope they all make it this year.
Climbing frame number 2 has runner and French beans ready to climb. I sow the seed straight into the ground. If nothing comes up I sow again as I collect the seed from the previous year.
Aha! My grapes. They've had a haircut twice and a little shake of each bunch just to thin them out. They are not heavy enough to hang downwards yet but it promises to be a bumper crop.
Tommyatoes - all set to roll!
We don't eat the asparagus every day so some have started to grow into ferns. There's a nice tender one just waiting to be eaten for tea. No more picking after June.
The onions are starting to thicken at the base ...
and the spring onions are ready.
Now why take a picture of the garden tap? Why the promise of a lovely large poppy which has started to grow at the base. They tend to pop up all over the plot but only a few are allowed to flower. This is one of them.
The promise of things to come plus the delight of watching them all grow now.
