more beans and a few courgettes....



and the contents of one potato bag..

Monday, 7 August 2017


I found, in the pantry, a bit of ginger root starting to sprout so I laid it on top of some damp compost and stuck it underneath a tomato plant in the greenhouse, and lo...!


Now what do I do with it!


The purple sweet corn is looking very healthy, thanks to all the rain lately, but no sign of any tassells.  They are going to have to get moving as the season is ticking on....only a few more weeks of "summer" to go.


picking now: broad beans (just tailing off), runner beans (in full flow), french beans (just starting), blackberries (just starting), courgettes (steady)

There are a couple of cucumbers in the making and three crown prince pumpkins, lets hope they get a bit bigger than last time I tried them.
