It was great to get back into the garden this weekend – it was the first dry weekend that we’ve had for ages so things have got a little out of hand. Peas and beans are great, we can crop them whenever we need some and they don’t need much maintenance. I’ve taken up the early carrots and planted an autumn cropping variety. Similarly with spring onions. Salad leaves seem to be growing very slowly, I suspect they like more sun – this is the first time in years that I’ve bought salad from the supermarket in July.
Tomatoes are ripening thick and fast, and cucumbers are now doing well after a slow start. This is the best year that I can remember for peppers and chillis, I’m going to have a glut before too long.
