Six on Saturday: 22 September 2018

A struggle this week to find six photographs.

My first carrots – don’t laugh!  I always knew they would be a bit deformed; after all, I haven’t got rid of all the larger stones and chunks of old mortar in this raised bed (will I ever?).

My last ‘harvest’ of peas and climbing beans.  They’ll add a bit of colour to the soup I’m making.

Last night on Gardener’s World, Monty suggested removing the leaves from squashes and cucumbers.  I did that this morning (in the rain) to reveal this!  I’m sure it will taste better than it looks.

Last week’s To Do list included sowing salad crops indoors.  This is red and green salad bowl lettuce now on my kitchen windowsill.

And we’ve had some strong winds here in North Wales.  Strong enough to finish off one of my two giant sunflowers on Wednesday.  This is the first flower head – too large to fit in a standard builders’ bucket.  The second plant (which only had one flower) is larger still.

And, after a very slow start, my cherry tomatoes are finally giving a good crop.
