Veggie garden 2nd August

This post has been in the making for quite some time. We have had a long period of really hot weather, too hot to get out into the garden. And when it was colder we had lots of rain, so again, I didn’t go out into the garden.
This meant that some areas of the veggie garden became a bit overgrown. But it’s not a big deal. We’ve had some great meals from it.

Somehow I managed to mess up the courgette and cucumber plants. I’ve ended up with 3 courgette plants and two cucumber plants. Don’t ask me how this happened, I have no idea…
The chinese beans did not survive the enormous amounts of water at the end of may. Some other beans did and they look great.
The tomatoes are (now) very tidy and I hope they’ll stay that way. Some of the carrots survived the rain, but not all. I have no idea how many survived exactly. For the onions it’s the same story. The only things that are doing great are the fruits. So many raspberries, tayberrries, blackberries, black currants and red currants. But they rarely make it indoors. There’s someone in the garden regularly that eats them as soon as she can… (yes, that would be me…)
