May Bank holiday weekend

Back in the Fruit Cage the Strawberries & Raspberries are so laden with fruit, they just need to ripen so we can harvest.
Here you can see the Blueberries, this picture taken on Saturday, but today they are even larger, after the rain, but still not turned Blue.

We have 5 Blueberry bushes, the others are doing well too.

Back in the Green House, if you look back a few weeks, you will notice how much the Tomatoes, Cucumbers & Peppers have grown.
The Cucumbers have fruit on already, we have 2 one is a mini version the other produces standard size fruit.

Today I planted out the Sweetcorn, only 8 made it from the ones started in the greenhouse at home, but have sown some more so we have a later successive crop.
So should end up with up to 20, planted out in a block formation, not a straight line, as this aids wind pollination.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
