Beans and Tomatoes - early crop!

Veg are growing great this year - early because of the hot weather I guess.

That looks great, Susan. My veg garden is going to be a disaster this year as very little has germinated (too wet and cold) and the slugs have been going mad.

Glad your veggie year was good Richard - as Kits said, it's hopeless here - my lettuce have been in for three weeks but are only about 1cm high. It's just too cold.

I put three tomato plants in a deep window tub inside my patio doors this year. The first tomato is just turning now - glad I didn't have them outside. Funnily enough the strawberries seem to be doing quite well at ripening, if not being too prolific.

I think it'll be a fallow year here too.

My tomato plants are around 4ft tall with a few yellow plants but no sign of a tomato yet. I do have one courgette from my 4 plants which is nearly ready but nothing else. The only success seems to be my runner beans which have flowered and are now starting to form into mini versions of what I hope will be a bumper crop.

I've got carrots and onions in but historically I grow a better looking plant above ground.....

Yes, it's a real shame all the work that goes into a vegetable garden or flower garden then get very little out of it, maybe next year??

That's the thing with gardening, isn't it? Sometimes the things you want to flourish just won't, then you get an unexpected bonus some years... for instance this year the honeysuckle and roses have done really well (looks like the day lillies will be good too) but veggies and salads - forget it!

I'm so glad you're having a good year there Susan.

Thanks, had a nice pile of fresh yellow beans with dinner tonight - nothing like fresh veg! and the watermelon is growing like crazy - will have to post a pick tonight.
