It's clearing & harvesting time again!

 Last week these Borlotti Beans were 2/3 of the way up, now they are almost at the top, just a few more days and I'll nip the tops off, to allow the beans to form.
Ooh exciting we have the beginings of a Cauliflower, it's the first we have grown for a few years.
 The Peas are filling out nicely, we have had some already with our dinner, and there are loads more to come! 
I even ate a pod full myself they were so sweet. 
Had to take this photo, of all the Poppies, the yellow ones are California Poppies. 
It's the view from our rest spot while having a cuppa & lunch.
Another cracking harvest: Charlotte Potatoes, Peas, Broad Beans, Strawberries, Raspberries, Loganberries & Sweet Peas. 
A Turnip too was found while clearing weeds in the Broad Bean patch, a surprise too! 
So while Jo was weeding the Broad Beans, she disturbed a Pheasant that flew off, later on Jo unearthed a nest among the undergrowth with 7 eggs in it. 
So she stopped and re-covered the nest in the hope the Pheasant will return, I'm sure it will.
Anyway we got lots done, even had a bonfire to burn some of the weeds we have pulled out and dried, there are still plenty more weeds, so another bonfire will be needed!

The pond is here somewhere, it's a bit overgrown again and will need clearing next time we are down!

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
