Below Courgette "Blackjack", has been a good fruiter but has now succumbed to powdery mildew. Also watermelon "sugar baby" is growing slowly but surely, rhubarb, spring onions
Below: Middle vege bed: Cucumbers : Mini White and Lebanese, have both now succumbed to powdery mildew. I had about 4 small cucumbers off the mini white and have had no lebanese cucumbers. Also growing slowly are two eggplants : Ophelia and Dok, flowers but no fruit yet. Also growing cos and frilly lettuces and Japanese turnips. Had great success with the first sowing of Japanese turnips, so have sown a second round.
Below - Tomatoes and Basil. Sweet 100 - as always great producer of fruit. Russian Red ,I expected this to be like a beefsteak but is more size of Moneymaker but is tasty and good fruiter. Beefsteak a rather small beefsteak but is tasty. Moneymaker, is off to a slow start this year is the last of the tomotoes to ripen fruit - there are plenty on the vine but not ripening, probably the poor weather is to blame. Sweet basil isn't faring too well this year. I bought a punnet of 6 plants and a couple have been eaten by something and the remaining aren't growing too well, again possibly a casualty of the weather.
Below - strawberries and Scarlett Runner Beans. Runner Beans: Have had first crop and some are in freezer for winter. Is now flowering and fruiting again. I planted sweetpeas with the beans but these have been overwhelmed by the beans and not seen a single flower.
Mint and chives. Haven't used the mint since before Xmas.
Below: Patio. 3 tomatoes grown from heirloom variety seed pack. Not much fruit and none has ripened yet. One fruit is very oddly shaped- see photo below. Also growing 1 Jalapeno chilli (below close-up)- so far has a few fruit but only one close to ripening. From a 6 pack growing wildfire chilli. And 2 capsicum which have produced a few fruit each - not yet picked.
