After last nights storms, this morning seems especially bright and clear - maybe the heavy rain has cleaned the air. No damage in the vegetable plot, just everything refreshed and growing vigorously. Runner beans about to climb up the giant "Bean Arch", courgettes in circles on stones, mange touts, mixed Italian salad leaves, florence fennel, edible chrysanthemums, lettuces, borage, vines, potatoes, artichokes, cardoons: a cornucopia of vegetables.
The artichokes looked particularly statuesque in the early morning sunlight. These are the best I've grown and I'm looking forward to sampling them tonight.
I love to read your comments (except for spam and advertising which I will delete) and I'll reply to you in the comments under each blog post, it may take a few days if I'm busy. You don't need to have a blog to leave a comment, you can select the name/URL option and fill in just your name instead of a blog link. And, I've turned off that annoying word verification malarkey, to make it easy for you :-)
