Summer has to be my favourite time of year for the garden.
It seems everything is abundant and lush! Temperatures seem down a bit this year, so everything is cropping a little later when compared to last summer. The bonus is that moisture is holding better in the soil. I've also been stuffing straw mulch around the plants wherever possible which is also helping keep the moisture in.
As usual I have packed as much as possible into the raised beds, so a lot of plants are growing over the top of each other!
Here are some photos taken last week....
