July in the garden - veg and fruit

 Gardening seems to be all about fruit picking at the moment - lots of redcurrants, blackcurrants and raspberries (even if they are hiding behind the feverfew)

The vegetable beds are dominated by this - a solitary brussel sprout that never got moved to the allotment

One side of the path has beans and sweet peas trying to climb up a wigwam

the other has mangetout peas
 At the foot of these wigwams are small salad veg - lettuce, spinach, rocket etc - and another 'left-behind' - a savoy cabbage

savoy cabbage

this seed bed should have been FULL of small winter cabbages and leeks but this is all that survived attacks by slugs and snails

 In the greenhouse tomatoes and grapes are filling but nothing ripening yet
