The last couple of days lots of lovely, beautiful and delicious things have been making their way from my little garden in to the house.
The tomatoes are really going crazy now, we are eating fresh ones every day and even managed a passata last night! By far my favourite thing to grow as they are such a staple in this house.
The fruit isn't over abundant, but enough for a handful of berries everyday, unfortunately most days those berries go to the toddler of the house, but next year I shall hopefully have an allotment full of fruit to feed us all.
These are the first of the blueberries and likely there will only be one other serving of them, my bushes are new this year so I'm hoping that next year they will be more fruitful, to be honest I am a little disappointed with them so far.
The borlotti beans too were a bit of a disappointment, but that is mainly due to the slug/snail problem I am facing, the little monsters are munching away at most of my dahlia heads and sweetcorn too, it is time to wage war on them, I have yet to decide the best course of action.
I did however rescue 3 beautiful dahlias this morning and put them safely in a vase inside the house. I love love love the colours! I'm also loving these sunflowers, they have gone absolutely crazy, from around 8 original plants I have so many flower heads it's unbelievable. The seeds were a gift from my step-brother at christmas and they were almost certainly the best gift I received, plus I figure if I save the seeds well, I can have gorgeous sunflowers to admire every year.
