Veggie Armageddon!!

Its that time again, here comes the glut. Things are picking up nicely now and more crops are starting to come to maturity, all I need are the tomatoes and I can have a self sufficient salad, there are plenty but no sign of red/yellow yet. The Burpless Tasty Green cucumbers are lovely and don't need peeling.

The Rocket early spuds are proving popular and I'm wishing I'd planted second earlies rather than mains in the rest of the bed.  Runner bean (Firefly) have had the first picking and the French beans (Bluelake) aren't far behind. It's a pity the peas are proving a failure.

The star of the show is of course the courgette, as you can see from the leader board the Zuchinni have jumped into the lead and show no sign of letting up. Once again we were away at the weekend and returned to 18 oversized fruits (plus a marrow and 4 cues). It's rained since so we are expecting that to jump again. Good job our work and gym buddies are taking them off our hands, for now at least.


Happy gardening folks!!

It will get to the stage when people will run and hide when they see you coming
