The Cottage Garden

The combination of hot weather and those quick heavy showers we’ve had over the last couple of weekends have really made the garden burst into fruit and vegetable heaven.  I’m already excited about picking the fruits of our labour!

We’ve got onions, shallots, French beans, lettuce, courgettes, tomatoes, two lots of `garlic, horseradish, strawberries, a new rosemary bush, red gooseberries and blackcurrants.  Plus, my lovely Dad has leeks, some more different types of tomatoes and other bits!  Not sure where I’m going to fit everything in… 

Plus mystery bush has flowered this year! Check out these beauties! I had to hold up the stems because the flower heads are so heavy!
