Flowers and Fruits

Aah, June. The warm weather, the heavy showers, the mild nights. It's always June when everything goes crazy on the plot, the weeds take over, and we run out of steam. It's always June when I abandon the blog.

Not this June.

I don't know why so many things are so behind this year (I could blame the cold winter and late spring, but I see on other blogs that many other people are not so affected) but they are certainly getting a move on now.

The first tomato flowers are opening...

The peas are finally flowering...

The broad beans are starting to appear...

The french beans are getting ready to flower...

And we have our first tiny cucumber beginning to swell...

Our first tiny courgette...

And our first tiny pumpkin...

I have finally harvested enough strawberries to call a snack, not just a nibble - though not from the plot where frost nipped the flowers, but from this tub in the garden...

The sorrel flowers look beautiful, even if I am a bit bitter about not having any leaf now...

And the bees are loving the comfrey, as well as all the veg flowers and nasturtiums dotted about the plot...

Aah, June.

I think I'm even further behind than you! I'm not close having corgettes or pumpkins which is a shame. Still you have to just do what you can at this time of year and hope to catch up again later (by this I mean I start ignoring the weeds and focus on planting...)

Oh look at your pumpkin. I have yet to put mine into the ground. Having trouble locating space for them in my garden plot, they may hust have to go into pots.

Delicious looking strawberries too. Signs of good tasty things to come. YUM.
