June already and Plot is Blooming

Strawberries almost ready to pick, and plenty of green ones to ripen soon.
The Charlotte 2nd early Potatoes, some in flower so will be ready to dig up soon. 
Will wait until flowers die back before a test dig though.
Onions also ready to lift soon, Potatoes beyond are Cara main crop. 
The wire frame has Runner Beans that we put in a few weeks ago. 
Really pleased with this patch, there's lots growing here: Parsnips, Shallot Onions, Beetroot, Broad Beans, Peas, French Beans & Sweetcorn. 
No space wasted even 4 Courgettes planted in between! 
Been clipping the edges of the grass path, looks a lot better now. 

The whole plot is buzzing with Bees too, we have spotted so many including: Banded Orange Tail, Black Bodied Orange Tail, Two Banded White Tail, Three Banded White Tail, Orange White Tail & Brown Bumble Bees. You can do your own Bee spotting by signing up to JoinThePod via this link:
We often get a few geese flying overhead, but today we heard them coming en-mass, probably heading for one of the local ponds at Gilroy Nature Reserve or Ashton Park in West Kirby.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
