More pictures than words today, based around the theme of harvests to come:
This is my summer raspberry patch and I only wish you could hear this rather than see my rather uninteresting photos. It is simply full of busy buzzing bees, pollinating the flowers and hopefully resulting is us have a bumper crop of raspberries.

More fruit to come here too - this is my thornless blackberry which produces huge fruits in a good year.
And the gooseberries are looking good. So do you love or hate gooseberries?
This one is for my friend Jane who assured me I could not keep basil alive. One week on and I've not killed it yet! (Please note use of word yet though!).

In the polytunnel, things are looking a bit bare compared to recent weeks but this week I have planted out 66 tomato plants, 10 peppers and 10 aubergines so there should be plenty to harvest later this summer. The overwintering onions are now ready for harvesting at a time when they are most expensive in the shops.

I bought in 6 early tomato plants and these are now just showing their first fruits - it will be a few more weeks before they are ready but they will be so good I can almost taste them now.
