Garden Update Week 31

No photo’s this week, because it is raining, raining, and raining even more. Nice for the garden (it was very dry), not so nice for being outside. Most flowers are in bloom, we have a steady harvest of herbs, lettuce and sugar snaps, and the tomato plant makes lots of tomatoes (that hopefully will ripen). The beets don’t grow very well, the carrots don’t seem to grow well either (but it is a difficult crop to check on) and the courgette plants flower, but don’t grow courgettes. Apparently the courgette is a vining variety, but it has grown completely into itself, making a complicated knot of stalks, which is not ideal. Next year I’ll grow a bush variety again, much easier.
