potatoes dying back


 The second earlies have thrown in the towel, even though they never did flower.


 Believe it or believe it not, this is the asparagus bed.  But the bees are loving it much more as a nasturtium bed.


 The dwarf french beans have flowers on.


 I managed to wait and have at last got some beetroot bigger than a golf ball.


 The squashes have run amok in their bed and any next door beds they could find.


In amongst that lot are the three gherkin plants which survived, all of which have baby cukes on.  I picked two,


which were the biggest gherkins I have ever seen, but they tasted 'orrible. Too big perhaps, I'm not sure what size they are supposed to be.
