It's All Kicking Off

No not the Premier League.  After a busy week I got to the plot today to discover everything is responding to the sunshine following the rain.

The courgettes are living up to their reputation for putting on a spurt as soon as your back is turned:

A nice surprise was the first cabbage. It's called Greyhound for a reason!

but the first red cabbage is ready too.

The Mangetout have started developing peas:

And once you have one runner bean ,,,,

One thing that had died back was the Elephant Garlic tops.  Time to dig it up for drying out.

Returning home I can report that the first tomatoes (Sungold) are ripening.


  1. True we seem to spend most of our time on the plot harvesting which after all is what it is all about!

  2. Sungold is ripening for us too. Our other varieties don't seem to be making any effort to ripen at all.

  3. My Red Cabbages seem to be developing quicker than I would expect too. For me, they are cold weather veg.
