Title: more gaps filled up in veg garden
Post by: langdon on June 08, 2011, 01:42:37 pm
got our sweetcorn out today and am glad to see those gaps filled up at last,
its all looking great at the mo, i love the flowers that veg plants produce, the peas and broad bean flowers are looking
amazing, looking forward to seeing the red flowers of the runner beans soon.

And don't forget, not only are they pretty but broad bean (and pea) flowers are edible too!   :yum:

My peas are budding but not flowered yet - I'm quite excited as the shallots I planted out last week and the red cabs look like they're taking ok and the runner beans are starting to grow again so things are looking up :)  Still got a few tiny PSB sprouts to eat but salad leaves are ready to start cropping now so at last I should be on the homegrown more and more, and giving Mr Tesco and co a bit less :D

I don't like broad beans so didn't grow them this year - am wondering if I should have put a few in to make something of them since they did well last couple of years ::)

I've got loads to do, sweetcorn ready to plant, french beans, and more leeks, not even started sowing my salad yet, not enough hours in the day.
