We have the first of the runner bean harvest today, so that’s great news.
And we have also planted some late leeks to fill up a bed – it’s so strange that you have to plant them in holes that you then don’t fill in with earth. Just water them and you’re done. No idea why but it works for leeks!
The late planting of mangetouts is now tall enough for us to put up a structure for them to grow on.
Meanwhile the beetroot is growing well …

We’re also really pleased with the Brussels sprouts as they seem to be growing away happily too, which is certainly different from the failures of the last two years!
The sunflowers actually have buds forming which is very exciting!
And, astonishingly, the birds have left us enough blackcurrants for another crumble – which is unheard of. The birds must be super-lazy this year. Here is the harvest, consisting of the blackcurrants, mangetouts, runner beans, gladioli, carnations, echinacea, rudbeckia, alstroemeria and sweet peas:
Here are the vases at home:
Happy Sunday, everyone!
