Summer produce

Our first flush of lettuces have finished, but the courgettes are starting: if you’re at the garden do check and harvest any that are large enough, as the more we pick the more they’ll produce.


Meanwhile the redcurrant and gooseberry bushes fruit are ripening, and should be ready to pick in a couple of weeks

We have basil, peppers and tomatoes in the greenhouse, and runner beans, garlic and globe artichokes growing away.

We also have  rabbits – the tops of leeks poking through wire mesh protection have been nibbled off, as have the bottom leaves of runner beans (we’ve put tree protectors round them!) A check of the perimeter revealed a weak point by our ‘back gate’ through the fence, which we’ve now blocked. This may have trapped rabbits in the garden, so we may have to catch and remove them
