Looking great Kits. I do love the look of those raised beds. Shame I've run out of sunny space in my garden. It's not easy being in a North facing plot

A little update!

Broad beans and dwarf beans are all in flower. Potatoes have gone mad! Leek, beetroot and carrot seeds are romping ahead, parsnips are lagging behind. Mange tout are also in flower. Courgettes seem behind compared to this time last year.

OH had the first of the rhubarb for pudding tonight and said it was delish. There was only enough for one serving. And I didn't even get offered a taste ...

Our runner beans are well up the poles now. OH hasn't planted any other veg outside, we have tomato & cucumber plants in the greenhouse though.
The rhubarb is rampant here in our garden.

Well, our rhubarb was rampant, but it seems to be dying now.
Hope you enjoyed the mange tout, Kits. We've never grown that.
