August in the garden -veg

 The veg patch is edged with marigolds - to add colour and to keep greenfly at bay. There's a single lettuce seedling, some very small brussels sprouts, a row of leeks and a couple of cabbage in this bed

with nasturtiums running through them

 rhubarb filling this patch
 small autumn/winter cauliflowers

 and newly planted celery and red cabbage. This is the first year I've managed to grow any celery - but even if it doesn't crop well, its bright green should look good against the cabbage.

 Tomatoes are filling - on the left are 'normal' red ones Moneymaker or Alicante

On the right are yellow Poire Jaune

 Not many grapes this year but they're filling well


and nearly forgotten, by the old playhouse, Blauwschokker peas - purple-flowers and green peas inside a purple pod
