picked this week - catching up after holiday
been on holiday so a lot of things to catch up on in the garden. came back to find a bag of runner beans waiting for me in the fridge and lots more still to be picked. the cucumbers were trying to take over the greenhouse - have several strange shaped specimens of fruit. 4 sensible shaped courgettes and one weird one. lots of peas to be picked from the alderman plants - some have dried out too much so I will save these for seed. the side-shoots on the green magic broccoli have grown - rather straggly but fit to eat. a couple of handfuls of small gartenperle tomatoes ready.
