St Ives Allotment - Summer Crops
After a slow start to the growing season - due to the exceptionally cold Spring weather - things are now looking pretty good on my plot.
Lots of plants starting to come through. Potatoes are lifted and stored - soon I'll have more crops.
Enjoy the pics - click on each to enlarge.
The first cucumbers are appearing - ready for first picking in a week or two I think.
Some courgettes already picked (and converted into ratatouille) - more - probably lots more - on the way.
Carrots - variety Autumn King - coming on well for an October / November harvest.
Pumpkins starting to swell out - hopefully will be ripe and ready for Halloween.
French Beans - variety Blauhilde - flowering nicely.
I also have Firetongue Borlotti Beans growing - slightly behind but flower buds appearing.
Looking forward to the harvest - must start emptying the freezer !
