Thanks to Stephen and Serena for replacing them !!
I harvested the last of the Purple Sprouting Broccoli at the week-end. Out of six plants which had all grown very tall and looked healthy until our severe winter, only three survived and only one of those gave any decent pickings. It really wasn't worth waiting any more for the measly pickings left as I needed the bed to get my canes up ready for the runner and french beans.
The Greenhouse is productive !
The Tayberry is doing amazingly well and has had loads of flowers, so hopefully lot's of fruit this summer.
The gooseberries are full of fruit, but I am a little concerned about the colour of the green gooseberry fruit as it looks like it's tinged a bit pink !! and NO this isn't the red gooseberry which is green at the moment, but does turn red later on. The labels are still on the bushes from when I first planted them, so I know I haven't mixed them up (as the hubby suggested) so it's a bit of a concern in case there is something wrong with the green one (any Ideas anyone ????) I just clicked to enlarge this photo and the fruit looks a bit spikey doen't it ? I must go back and check this out tomorrow.
The green gooseberry (honest)
The red gooseberry (it goes red later on) below. I checked the original tags still intact and it really is the red variety
And finally, broad beans (doing very well) and red veined spinach, I love this variety and have also grown the larger leaved green one and a baby leaved variety as well ( Look out Popeye !!!!)
Such a long post ! isn't it nice when everything starts looking fruitful ?
