Hello Puss...........glad to hear that your garden is growing on you :)

We have beetroot cooking as I "speak". Our Broad beans have been fantastic this year, sweet corn is coming along nicely.

Oh has been making strawberry jam , ( little strawberrys are perfect for jam ).

We are waiting for the blueberries to ripen , they are looking good.

Peppers and Aubergines in the greenhouse are starting to we need some lovely

~~~~~~ to other fellow gardeners.
