Pre-harvest anticipation

So much growing… so little to eat. We’re watching all the plants starting to fruit with a hungry belly. Hopefully there won’t be too much longer to wait.

tomatoes-5-july
We’ve six thriving tomato plants all starting to show fruit (five in the glasshouse, one outside – a mixture of Douglas F1s and ‘Gardeners Delight’).
peas-5-july
The ‘progress’ pea pods are coming along nicely.
courgette-5-july
Two of our three courgettes are starting to produce.
squash-5-july
I planted four hokkaido squash plants (probably should have just planted one) – they’ve taken over the bed and are spreading their tendrils around the garden. I’m not sure where this is going to lead… hopefully to a bumper harvest of squash!
beans-5-july
The runner beans are starting to show their first pods.
potatoes-5-july
The mystery potatoes (plants that started to grow from compost) are thriving in their new planter home.
