An update from the plot and garden

In the garden I sowed a few purple dwarf French Beans which seem to be growing better than the ones on the plot.

Then we have some New Zealand Spinach I thought I’d give a try

And then a bush tomato plant that looks like it won’t grow any bigger!


Onto the plot…… its been bone dry despite trying to water with a can for 20mins before work. Luckily its rained within the last few days! Tomatoes on the plot look a bit better than the ones in the garden


Late potatoes are doing ok without much watering although I’ve seen other peoples about a foot higher than mine


Celeriac is doing ok but the celery is very slow as always



The Rhubarb always grows well. This was on the plot before I took it over. I think its Victoria.


The Green Globe Artichokes always do well but I never eat them just let the bees get into the amazing flowers

Last year I bought a Physalis plant for 1.50 and this year I’ve got 2 lanterns on it! I’m looking forward to trying to eat the fruit inside!


The Kale I’ve always grown always seemed to be attacked by slugs or caterpillars but these have survived so far.


Beetroot in woodchips are growing slowly


and the sweetcorn is alive and well unlike the last 2 years. Thats it, too much to post, I’ll update more after Sunday!

    Do you usually get a decent crop of celeriac? I normally struggle to get any of a particularly good size.
