June in the garden - fruit and veg
This is how my ornamental vegetable beds are shaping up so far - cabbages surrounded by white radishes (and flowers) with rhubarb flopping over at the back
blocks of little gem lettuce and running-to-seed bordeaux spinach with rows of cabbage seedlings in between (not really visible)
some shorter mangetout peas - I think they're 'reuzensuicker' but it was the end of a packet and the slugs ate the label! And a small row of 'forgotten exactly what' winter onions/shallots.
..and lining the path to the greenhouse
where inside the grape vine is in bud! We acquired several young vines with our allotment and this is the first one to have signs of flowers - and hopefully grapes.
