picked this week

our first cucumber of the year

some broccoli that should have been early purple sprouting but.....

not so many raspberries this week and strawberries are mainly down to the tiny alpines

too many courgettes!

more broad beans


  1. your garden is gifting you well, I miss so much having my garden,, I'll keep coming here to enjoy yours,, I'll invision myself picking the harvest,, (OK, not too strange huh) must be this blasted heat!That and I'm over due for my tea!

  2. Our cucumbers are doing great too. Not too many courgettes yet, but they're on their way!

  3. Unfortunately something happened to the cucumber plant and it keeled over and died. We've 2 more in the allotment polytunnel which are still looking healthy but not bearing any fruit yet. I wish they'd grow as easily as courgettes - we're at the give-away stage with them!
