Two delicious ‘firsts’ of the season…

Delighted to find a red tomato in the greenhouse yesterday (and a few more orange ones turning…) and a small but beautifully formed crystal apple cucumber.

I grew these little round cucumbers last year for the first time & found them so tasty I gave them another try this year – one plant has provided this single cucumber and the other is bursting with flowers & growing out of the greenhouse like a massive triffid but no fruit ready yet. Must try and be patient…

We were about to head out for a meal but thought we’d better try out our lovely fresh picked produce – absolutely delicious so hoping for lots more of both.

    Always satisfying to grow your own – we have runner beans, lots of herbs and tomatoes – not ripe yet. All in a very small patch
