Veggie garden 13th May

So, the runner beans and chinese beans haven’t made it. I knew it was early to plant them outside, so I’ve sowed new ones. The marrowfat peas are doing great!

The cucumber plants have survived cat Dipsy landing amongst them and I’ve moved them outside just half an hour ago. I made a frame with rope to get them to climb.

The beetroot, onions and carrots are slowly starting to get out of the ground, but not much to see yet. The radishes are almost ready for harvesting. I’m thinking of doing a salad for dinner and will be using one or two for that.

The lettuce is doing great and it won’t take long before we can do the first harvest. Mind you, I just take some leaves and leave the rest of the plant to grow bigger.

The black currants are aiting for the sun to give them a little colour. The tayberries are flowering and here and there there’s already the beginning of a tayberry. The strawberries are in full flower and if the flowers are anything to go by, we’ll be eating lots and lots of strawberries in a few weeks.
