What's going on in the garden




You're right. That's quite a few courgette plants but we are sharing with the neighbours. And there's a squash too at the top (Marina di Chioggia).

Meanwhile our broad bean harvest hasn't started yet but the small beans are starting to develop so tomorrow I pinch out the tops for supper.




The polytunnel is going really well. We're self-sufficient in salad. And the mangetout are starting. The tomatoes look very healthy and have lots of flowers. I just need to find the time to plant out some of the chillies and aubergines.

Your beans are way ahead of mine - I'm so looking forward to fresh young beans.

A poly tunnel looks like a good idea. I'm getting tempted...

The polytunnel is brilliant. Go for it.

All looks like it's coming along nicely :) I'm actually hoping for a glut of courgettes this year so I have a good reason to make chutney! Sadly our broad beans seem to have succumbed to a really nasty bout of rust (or something) that looks like it might be fatal. Thankfully the sugar snap peas and runners are doing well so I won't be completely bean-less!
