July 22 Plot 5's Bounty

This garden is made to grow potatoes - have a look at the harvest from one hill each French Fingerling and German Butter

more potato onions, kale, scallions and green beans; for every potato onion bulb planted the return is generally five and they store well until the spring
lots of blossoms on "Gretel" eggplant but no fruit set yet

Another tomato - Fish Lake Oxheart - seems very productive to date

a forest of dwarf tomatoes, from the left - Wherokowfai, Cheerful F3 and Dwarf Black Angus

and space emerges for fall planting

July 16 More Sweet Peas and Beans

The post title says it all - love the colours

July 14 Plot 5 Garden Overflows

I tend to squeeze too much into my garden plot - but with this summer's heat wave it has helped keep the soil moist with little watering required to date .....

tomatoes remain robust and healthy - really looking forward to Wherokowhai

more sweet peas - a lovely large boquet every few days - and look at this harvest from my one Yukon Gold hill ..... oh and mustn't forget my first "Bush Baby" zucchini

"Red Swan" the first red bush bean I've grown - very pretty in the garden

and to finish off this post - Aster x frikartii Monch - seems intent on taking over the garden!!

July 10 More to Harvest

Everything grows so quickly this time of the year ........

a large bouquet of sweetpeas "April in Paris" very powerful scent

more potato onions and scallions, blueberries and French fingerling potatoes

the first pick of my bush beans - Red Swan and a tasty green variety.

July 8 Harvest Begins

My first potato onion with two Red Robin F1 scallions - crisp, sweet wonderful flavour!!  The scallions are from Renee's Garden "Delicious Duo" mix - well worth growing
