Lovely, grown-up artichokes. I’m really proud of these, but what you can’t see is just how big the plants are. They’re as tall as me, and each year they seem to get bigger and bigger…
After three years of pea disappointments, I’m finally getting a crop. These are March sown plants, and looking good. The temptation to eat them as sugar snaps are strong though…
I finally harvested my first strawbs of 2012 on the 1st of June, about 2 and a half weeks later than last year. A fortnight behind seems to be the way at the moment.
The berries are still too tarte to eat raw, but they’ll be good to cook with.
And finally, late closing at the plots! The daylight hours are long, and I’ve been out in my garden until 9.30 pm some nights. Oh, how I love this time of year.
