    Nice work. My toms have been in a few weeks. Lost my cucumber, pepper to that late cold weather and frost a few weeks back. Just replanted some replacements today. Beans, sweetcorn and butter nuts sowed today to. Hopefully get the rest of the beets and carrots in over the next week.

    20190805_195658.jpg I went with a couple of these veg trugs this year - expensive but easy to keep on top of. Have gone great guns, about to cut some cucumber, toms, spring onion and little gems to go with a nice sirloin for my tea. 20190805_195658.jpg

    I’ve been away on hols for the last 3 weeks so I dread to think of where my veg patch and poly tunnel has gone. I’ve had someone coming in and watering my sweat peas in exchange for picking whatever is ready. Apparently there has been a French bean avalanche along with courgettes and toms. I’ll post some pictures when I get back. And I’m hoping my sweat corn isn’t far away from being ready on my return.

    Love the look of those toms. Very meaty looking. What were the variety?

    IMG_20190805_165843754.jpg been a mission of mine to have a meal consisting solely of food I've caught, foraged or grown. BBQ'd bass and Padron peppers, potato and French bean salad with herbs, toms and cues. Only the oil, vinegar, salt & pepper, spices are bought

    I thought they were eastern European..but the only variety I've grown beginning with Z is Zapotec...a Mexican variety...but they are supposed to be "pleated"... I'll have another look...

    Ready for a BLT now. There is nothing better than tomatoes grown naturally. The supermarket tomatoes are so inferior, I only buy them when making salsa or something similar.
    Great garden. I'm a little jealous.

    That’s a years supply of cabbage right there!

    I got my son (4) into growing this summer. We don’t have a lot of space so it’s just a few random pots and gro bags scattered around the garden. It’s a heck of a way to get him to eat vegetables though when he grew them himself, he’s loving the tomatoes and radishes.

    I love a cape gooseberry.
