The First Crops



Sunday we had our first crops from our garden. We pulled a few of the carrots I had growing in the Greenhouse

Pulled some peas and runner beans,
Add to that some  of the potatoes we had dug the previous week and we had a delicious dinner





















One thing I have not shown you are the apples we have growing, they seem to be ripening up nicely





Along by the greenhouse I have planted some more spring onions and lettuce which are now growing well.
At the back the Zuccini  (courgette) were growing well and will soon be cut in a week or so




Quite sure the tomatoes growing there will be ripe soon.


In the bed the leeks are really growing well along with the carrots lettuce and spring onions I planed between them
This is the first time I have grown them and they have done better than I thought






















We also have runner beans growing up the poles which are flowering so I'm looking forward to seeing beans soon
In the greenhouse Aubergine's have flowers on then




















The chillies are growing  well I have  JalapeƱo, Tokyo Hot 
and Cayenne






















Cucumbers continue to grow well and we harvest them regular and I am pleased to say the Tomatoes are ripening, hopefully by this time next week I will have picked the first.
The big drawback is I seem to be continuously watering them but a small price to pay.

  2. That all looks good. It's always rather exciting when the first produce is ready for eating, no matter how many years it's been occurring.

    1. When I was a kid I had fresh produce all the time from my parents garden and though I have grow beans ans spuds before this the first time I really tried Carrots and peas and other vegetables. I thing my parents would be chuffed with what I have achieved

  3. Your garden is looking great and producing such beautiful harvest. Those carrots are really so perfect. We harvested a few from our garden and they were much smaller. I guess we'll have to let them keep growing.

    1. Not sure what I was expecting some come out longer that others but they are good. Think the rule of thumb is 9 weeks from sewing

  12. I haven't had a vegetable garden for two years now. I sure miss my fresh foods, especially the carrots and potatoes. They lasted all year long including storage times. - Margy

  13. Oh, nom nom!! There's not much better than tasting the things you grew with your own hands! Take a big bite of a tomato for me when they are ripe!

    It's great to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week!

  14. That's a nice vegetable (kitchen) garden Billy. The produce look so fresh and they will definitely taste good too.

    Hope your garden keeps blooming and providing healthy food.
