Thought I had better add this, as have so much to add about my Garden.  My big News, is , at last have managed to grow a Himalayan Poppy, tried for the last couple of Years, but nothing, true what they say, never give up.    Have as wide a range of Veggies as I have room for, so starting with Radish, Lettuce, Spring Onion, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Courgette, Beans, and Peas. Fruit, have Strawberries, Raspberries, Gooseberries, Blueberries, and Apples, eating, and cooking, forgot Rhubarb!

At the moment, am eating Radish, Lettuce thinnings, and Rhubarb, so that is a start.  Better make a start myself. Happy growing !

What a lot you have growing, Tina!  We're quite behind with our veg growing this year (luckily, the fruit more or less takes care of itself), due to various ongoing problems.  Hopefully, it will all catch up in due course.

One new thing we're growing this year for the first time is asparagus, which I love....well, it's growing fine but we won't be able to harvest any this year, you're supposed to leave it for a year or two.

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O
