June Garden Update

I just wanted to do a little update on how the garden is growing so far this year. It's nice for me to look back at past years on my blog and compare how well things are growing.

We have some salad, but it will need to be fairly bigger before we can pick them.

 A tree full of plums..

Lots of Raspberries. Raspberries can be so expensive so I really can't wait to eat them. I'm hoping to use them in some loaf cakes!

We have spring onions (for salads) and the mange tout is growing nicely. Mange Tout is really EASY  to grow.

We also have Carrots and some Parsnips. It's nice to pick these in the Autumn/Winter time and remember the balmy evenings spent watering them.

That's about it! We do have a few courgette plants but they are growing so slowly that I don't think we're going to get much out of them. It's a shame as they are a favourite of mine!

So my question for you today is do you grow your own fruit and vegetables? I've said it before on my blog, but it is SO SO satisfying eating something you've grown. In the past we've just used pots to grow a few carrots or a courgette plant, so you do not need much space.

Anyway I hope you are having a great Wednesday. It's been so hot humid and muggy here today. Everything is sticking to everything..Ha!It's not nice!
