The bluebells have wilted now. The apple tree has no more blossom. The broad bean flowers are turning into pods and the strawberry flowers are growing into fruit. However, there a few new additions to the garden which are attracting the bumblebees and hopefully other bees as well.
The next is flowers on the thornless blackberry bush. This bush has really taken off – and it is only the first year that I have had it:
Moving round the garden, here are the potato plants – and to think these are from the remnants of potatoes I left in the ground after the winter crop last year or vegetable peelings that I put in the ground to fertilise the soil (along with other pre-compost material):
Finally, there is the next batch of mangetout on its way. Even though I have too few plants for a substantial crop, these make a pleasant addition to the many dishes I use them in:
Now, I am looking forward to these turning into edibles for my kitchen 🙂
