The end of July......

This is yesterdays bicycle harvest.
I roasted the yellow courgettes and beetroot for dinner.
These are the yellow courgettes - "Summer Ball" in their growing position


And some cherry tomatoes ripening on the vine - it's a hard job not to eat them all directly after picking as they taste sooooooo sweet!




A greenhouse cucumber - coming along nicely as it's my first try at growing them.



I have had to put additional string up across the greenhouse as they ran out of growing space!



The hot chilli's


The not so hot chilli's


My aubergines that look like purple cucumbers!


Tomato Roma are starting to ripen in the greenhouse



More Tomato Roma


This morning's bicycle harvest



I love sunflowers!

A lovely harvest indeed. My first cucumber is about three inches long. I can't wait until it is ready to pick.

Harvested my first cucumber today they are outside grown and my roma toms are still green they are also outside. My aubergines are well, still only flowering.

Your harvest looks great by the way.

Thanks Keewee - my first year of growing cucumbers so I am really pleased.

Hi Kella - they taste so much better don't they? I am growing Picolino (snack cucumber) and Bedfordshire which is outdoor ridge type. I have about 18 plants in all so will be overcome by cucumbers!

Hello Mo - I love my basket too, but unfortunately its dented badly as my bike keeps falling over. i will get a new one for next year - bigger one!!
