The plot!

Rather pleased with progress of the onions & garlic & although tunnel is nothing like the planting plan it's doing pretty well!

Strawberries in the greenhouse fruiting up nicely, probably 10 days away

Fascinated to see all the support and protective devices everybody is using. Makes you realise growing all this stuff is not as easy as it looks when it comes to protecting it long enough to be able to actually reap a crop!

OK, I do know which spuds are which but my carrots are not that advanced.
The raddish (white icicle as given away with KG) are doing OK. They taste nice, although I think traditional round red-topped ones are better.

Inside the greenhouse, those peas are doing well and we might get to have some of the carrots next week

Blimey Tiger, that all looks amazing! You must be chuffed!

I must try to remember to take some pics when down next, this lack of rain is impacting on my photo time & I won't have the reference from year to year just to check progress, successes & failures!

That all looks terrific! My greenhouse mange tout and doing well, but I keep eating them as I pick them. I've assured hubby that they're really, really nice, but he just looks balefully at me. I was really good and shared the first fat strawberries that I picked today.

Thanks for the kind comments, the peas and carrots were a lockdown experiment to see if I could bring on an early crop, not wishing to count my chickens just yet, but looking better than I thought.

The pond I have built during lockdown is maturing slowly, the dreaded blanket weed is just starting to grow, so it is naturalising and there's lots of small insect larvae in there, even some water boatmen and pond skaters have flown in.
