Isn't it great eating fresh from the garden - spring onions, spinach, courgette at last, cabbage, leeks, lettuce. Everything else racing and the 7omls rain we had last week has really given a boost. Tomatoes look as though they are growing a few centimetres every day - can hardly keep up with cutting the laterals out. Interested to hear your comments about garlic Lynn - I have a feeling mine is not going tobe that great and may pull up now as I also need the space for more summer vege.  I have got blueberries this year - first time ever grown such a thing so really looking forward to them.

Harvested onions today and they're happily drying on racks in the sun - about 7 dozen. Also lifted the garlic and elephant garlic - a mixed result - but I need the room for more seedlings to be planted next week and the soil needed prepping. Happy enough with what I got, but will make better provision for it next year to get a better result. Eating lettuce, cucumber, zucchini, spring onions, spinach, kale, celery, fennel leaves, baby leeks, strawberries, currants and lots of fabulous herbs. Life is good!

Yesterday saw the first harvest of new potatoes - sorry folks, I just couldn't wait any longer!!! OMGosh, they made a beautiful potato salad! Purple Passion, small, but delicious. I am, of course, hoping that another 2 weeks of growth will allow them to be bigger for Christmas...if I can wait that long!

Mmmm sounds good Lynn.. I'm missing fresh veg from my garden. Now that I am officially on holiday from a year of study.. I can concentrate in getting my garden up to scratch for a few months before I hit the books again.

Sounds marvellous Lynn. I am not having much luck with cucumbers and courgette this year at all. Must be something in the air!! Also not had a strike of carrots.

While I've been eating many things from my garden for the past several weeks and have not had to buy any vegetables (YAY!), today saw the first harvested cucumber. A Lebanese cucumber, delicious! All gone now! LOL - made a cucumber, carrot and beetroot salad, with herbs - everything harvested today. Fabulous...and loving it!

Richard, have you got a photo of the compost? Be great to see it.

we built a 2 cubic metre biodynamic compost pile on Monday - the first of three planned. And we put a water heating coil in it so our semi-wwoofers can shower.

I don't have any problems with birds Sheryl [except in late summer when they attack the tomatoes] 

I would think the only point to consider with rocket around tomatoes is the size/height - but I guess it would be alright - by the time the rocket gets to full grown size the tomatoes will be well up and away. I always trim rocket anyway as it always bolts to seed.
