Lots of food on its way…

Well, it was a quiet dig day this weekend, probably due to Fathers Day. Apologies if anyone turned up later in the morning, as you possibly found no-one there, as I had to leave early.

Well, everything seems to be thriving, and it is exciting to wander around the garden looking at everything doing so well.  Well almost everything…

Our broad beans are not too far away from being ready for picking! This will be our first major crop aside from a handful of radishes.

The herb bed is coming along well. It now includes parsley, thyme, chives, coriander, lime thyme (!), marjoram, plus a few radishes that are just making use of a bit of available space.

Our first courgette is doing well, and the round ones are also starting to produce fruit. These should continue to produce for us through the summer.

The ladybird nymphs are starting to get the blackfly under control.

Unfortunately the slugs had a great feast on the broccoli in the main patch…

…but we protected the broccoli in the little bed beside the patio with organic slug bait and they are thriving, and now producing some heads. Hopefully they don’t bolt!

Join us next weekend as we keep the weeds at bay, perhaps plant out a few more tomatoes and admire our crops.
