I was a bit concerned when I saw the colour of the leaves on the courgettes, but then I remembered...
they are yellow courgettes.
the red, white and blackcurrants are all soon to be picked. The whites have won in the quantity race..
(sorry its a bit blurry) there are only a few blackcurrants, but I think the birds might have got at them before I put the netting up, and the redcurrants haven't really recovered from being moved last year. I must admit though that I am not altogether sure what to do with whitecurrants, I wonder if whitecurrant jam or jelly would work.
The thornless blackberry has plenty of blossom, promising a good crop.
All the winter onions are up and drying, I knew that old length of fencing would come in useful, and the now empty bed has a couple of rows of sugar snap peas. I know its getting towards the end of the season, but given a good summer they might make it.
This mass of nasturtiums was a single row down the middle of the asparagus bed.
The Wilja potatoes have gone a yellowish green and look as if they are starting to die back, and even though they still haven't flowered, they must be ready now. Look out friends and family, potatoes coming your way! At least I will have somewhere to plant the leeks soon.
The garlic is drying nicely in the shed.
The kale is looking magnificent, pity we don't like it very much. Though I have just heard of a way of cooking it that might appeal more than kale just steamed.
