My first two french beans 'Fasold' I grew these last year and they are delicious. There are lots of flowers so I'm hoping for a bumper crop this year.
Two rows of beetroot, I didn't thin them out in time, so now I am pulling them as baby ones and leaving some in to get bigger.
The three varieties of courgettes. I also planted seeds for long yellow ones, but I think I gave them all away by mistake as the tags got lost, so I have planted two long green ! doh !!
Two varieties of Parsnips either end carrots in the middle and some self sown nasturtiums.
The herb bed
Some of the squashes, I have lot's more.
These two are 'Legend'
This is a little 'Turks cap' squash
The broad beans, I have had such a bumper crop this year and they have unfortunately been covered in blackfly. I didn't pinch out the tops early enough, but they wash off and have to be podded anyway. I love to eat my broad beans small and tender.
I have a real little Eco system going on amongst the broad beans, but these two would rather get up to more interesting things than eat the blackfly !!
Ohhh the lovely mangetout, my favourite this year, I have just got another row going for after this row gives out.
Purple brussel sprouts (at the back) and purple sprouting broccoli (in front) I have to thin them out as they are too close together and more than I need, but rather than compost some and then lose the ones I planted (sod's law !) I put them all in for the time being. (my law !)
I have had one row of 'Charlotte up and they are delicious.
Onions, red and white and all grown from seed. There's about 150 all together in this and another bed.
A small fruit harvest from yesterday. I have been picking strawberries every day and have frozen bags of them.
A small fruit and veg harvest from a couple of days ago. Sadly the spinach is all gone so I must sow some more.
That's it for today, I took masses of photo's this afternoon, far to many to show here in this post, so I will put some more on later. Have a great week-end everyone. I'm looking forward to next week as we are going to Hampton Court Flower Show. I have been every year for about 7 years now and love it for the photography as well as all the lovely plants and ideas.
