So many veggies and fruits growing well!

Quick trawl of the garden tonight is showing lots of promise for some good harvests to come.  So far the broad beans are flowering like mad, being visited by lots of pollinators and currently are not being attacked by aphids.  It’s time to start checking them daily for that problem though!

The early peas have only just started to flower, so I’m not convinced they are particularly early, but we’ll take what we can get!

The French beans have just started poking their heads above the soil, obviously enjoying this fairly stable warm weather we are having.

The courgette plants are just starting to bud, this is the first year we’ve had room to grow them in the ground instead of in containers so we are hoping for an excellent harvest.

Major excitement in the greengage tree container, as one of it’s seeds from last year has sprouted!  I’ll be looking into the best way to move it safely into it’s own pot tomorrow, but what an unexpected result?!

The blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, gooseberries and blackcurrant are all storming along as usual, even the cherry tree has cherries on it still, so the CD’s hanging from it’s branches to protect it have done then job!  We also have our first apples on the Pippin!  (Lots of photos following this….)
