Have been harvesting Runner Beans weekly. Mange Tout and Sugar Snap daily. Herbs are in regular use but curly-leaf parsley is top of the list at the moment. Growing room is full of tomatoes all be it still green. Shall be overrun when the color change takes place.

Our sweetcorn cobs have come to full size weeks earlier than last year; but the tomatoes are slower to ripen.

Last, of my greens and potatoes are now in the slow cooker.   All grown in pots and tubs. No more flowers appeared. so they have now been pulled out and awaiting the trip to be recycled. Herbs have liked the weather and have flourished. Will last until the end of October.

Toms now ripening faster than I can use them; 2 aubergines, 3 pumpkins and 7 peppers. Melons swelling and plums ripening nicely.


Lots of nasty little triangular flies biting legs and feet, mostly on the lawn areas. Really bad reaction to these.
