Clicking on any of the pictures will open them at full size in the browser window, which means you will have to use the 'back' button to return to the main pages, whereas clicking to the left or right of any picture will open them in a new window, if you fancy a closer look at any of the piccies we've posted! We've included a Google Earth satelite picture of our plots and this years planting plan at the bottom of the page, next to each other. If you choose the Earth view on the satelite image you can rotate the image until it is lined up with the planting plan, then use the arrows in the plan to scroll from Plot 2 to Plot 1.

Update for 10th June, plot1!
So, to further update them, this is the same middle bed as shown in the last post, 5 days later! Does appear to be growing quote well doesnt it! Neither of us can wait till the corn is producing cobs, we both love sweetcorn, especially when its roasted on the barbecue! With a total of 40 minipop sweetcorn for cooking and about 70 full size sweetcorn plants we are hoping for a bumper harvest and plenty of cobs to scoff and some more to freeze!
The first of the overwintering onions are approaching ripeness, the stems have collapsed, and the bulbs on some are almost 5" diameter! I have a felling I am going to be harvesting them this week!!!!
This is our braod beans, we harvested a few early ones the other day, but are going to wait a little longer for them to grow a bit more! They were successionally planted, so we should be cropping for a long time, with any luck!
The same courrgette plants as in the last post, but look how they've grown! Definitely a contender for the Audrey Too awards! 'Feed Me, Feed Me Now Seymour!'
Here you can see the Mange Tout, none of which ahs made it home yet, we've been harvesting a few pods a day, and scoffing them on the spot! Delish! To the right can also be seen some of the little gem lettuces, coming on a treat! We also had a lovely big iceberg from plot1 the other day! Delish, and lasts soo much longer than shop bought too!
Plot2 update for the same date to follow!
