Top of bed 1 showing rather small onions and bolted lettuces but an excellent crop of parsley and some huge broad beans in the background. The courgettes are just starting (no glut - yet) but the kale and sprouting broccoli still has a lot of growing to do.
The vegetable garden is looking pretty good now. So, pinching an idea from Colour it Green's blog , here is a quick tour of what is growing out there.
Bed 2 with a real mix of things, some doing better than others. The thin leaves slightly to the right of the picture are salsify which I've never grown before. In the top right you can just see some rhubarb, some of 7 plants I moved from the old veg patch here and which are doing really well. I've resisited the urge to pick any this year to give the plants the chance to strengthen up. But next year I am planning to see if I can actually get fed up with rhubarb crumble, cake, chutney .......
Bed 3 is mainly the fruit bed but as the bushes are all still small I've infilled the gaps with all sorts of things such as sweetcorn, kale, climbing french beans, pumpkins and the tallest sunflowers I have ever grown. I got enough fruit to make a couple of nice puddings but again, next year should be a lot more productive (I hope).
