End of July already!

Lets start with the Harvest: 
Redcurrants, Potatoes, 
Courgette, Cucumber, 
Broad Beans, French Beans, 
Round Courgettes, Turnips, 
Raspberries, Blueberries & Blackberries.
This patch, where we had Leeks & Onions, had a few bonfires here too. 
But we needed the space for some winter crops like Kale, so I dug it over and removed lots of weeds. 

Our scarecrow, put in for Open Day last week, is doing her job well as the Peas I put in a few weeks ago had been pecked out, only a few remained, but since our scarecrow arrived they have survived.
Another crop I put in 2 weeks ago has already popped up. 
Its a mixed salad leaf crop. 

We sowed another row of Beetroot seed here too.
One of our many Sunflowers, this one is Pikes Peak, that can reach 15ft! 
But this one is barely 6ft, maybe it will keep growing?
Cox's Orange Pippin apples looking abundant still, I'm hoping for a bumper crop this year.
The Sweetcorn again, we planted 2 varieties, this one is a mini corn variety that doesnt grow too tall. Wont be long now before the corn cobs start forming.

So we spent a few hours yesterday (Saturday) watering, weeding and planting.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
