First broad beans and new pond

Strawberries ripening nicely.  It is quite dull so they aren't ripening all at once which gives us time to eat them before the next lot.

We have had some rain at last, everything will race away now.

Had the first picking of broad beans last weekend, not that many yet and quite slimline, but very tasty.

It is warm enough at last to take the cloche off...
 The three new cucumbers on a mound.  They are looking a bit yellow though..
 The rest of the sweet corn were planted out.
 I put some very leggy dwarf french beans in between the rows of peas..
 Lots of unripe strawberries yet to come..
 The garlic is bulbing up..
 The sweet peas have a lot of good strong growth, but no flowers so far..
 The apricot foxgloves look good..
 I have a pond!
 And this is the space it is destined for.. You might not believe it, but there is a pond in there somewhere already.  Remember the baby bath?
