Harvest starts in June

First thing harvested was lettuce, followed by broad beans, potatoes, and courgettes at the end of the month.

Watering was a major workload, as in May – virtually no rain since march –  until July 1st

Fortunately we had a  4 way hose system – photo thanks to our watering geek

The summer cabbages, planted in May, were hearting up nicely free from caterpillars under their covering, as the mangetout appears


The greenhouse was stuffed full of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers and although we had the cover for the polytunnel, we lacked the perfect opportunity to put it on.

The shed, foraged for free from bristol, sat ‘flatpacked’ under the tree awaiting assembly

Planting stuff, then keeping it all watered and weeded was taking almost all our time.
