How are things growing in your container garden this month? What are you picking to eat? Any particular successes, learning or disasters?
I’m just back from nine days away in London and cannot believe how much everything has grown in that time. I’m sure the beans and tomatoes have grown at least a foot. The front is becoming quite a jungle. I think I need to prune a few things and move a few things around to ensure some plants get more light.
Here’s the front:
While the tomatoes and tomatillos are a mass of green growth at the back (these are growing in last year’s compost so I’m quite pleased with how well they are growing so far).
As well as lots of salads and herbs, the soft fruit season has begun here - so we’re eating lots of blackberries and raspberries…
And the new cherry tree has produced two cherries! (as expected in year one). The good news is that they are very delicious… So hoping we’ll get a much bigger crop in future years.
