My wee garden is producing small amounts of fruit and vegetables. My apples are nearly ready. My 4 pots of Charlotte potatoes yielded a few meals. I've picked handfuls of blueberries, blackcurrants and raspberries. My pea pods are big and fat but the peas inside are small. Nothing in any quantity big enough to freeze or preserve. Ah well.
I have 18 tomato plants in the polytunnel with no flowers therefore no chance of tomatoes. I'm going to pull them all out and maybe replant with something else edible. Any suggestions??
You can see in this photo that the plastic is degrading between the green lines. I'm seriously considering taking it down. Maybe putting some raised beds in it's place. Dunno.
We've celebrated a few family birthdays recently. My 'wee' sister was 50, OH's daughter was 21, my niece will be 18 next week and OH's son will be 16. This photo was celebrating the 21st birthday. I had a lovely meal from a gluten free menu but I did suffer with some digestive issues for a few days after. Sometimes it's just not worth the pain of eating out 😔
