Mid-August Garden

The drying runner beans are flowering but we’re still waiting for something to set. They’re determined to grow into the sky; the top of the poles is about 10ft!

The purple climbing beans are podding up.imageThe sweet peas have come up. I’d love to be able to give Honey some flowers before the plants die back.imageTurnips yielded a decent crop. Pick smaller next year for more tender roots.imageThe soup peas are beginning to dry and the flowering has stopped. I have another few harvests waiting on the plants.imageThe peas are ending and the asparagus peas have given us a modest harvest for a few weeks. I picked the last major blackberry batch this week. They’re soft, juicy and sweet and I realised I picked some too early a few weeks ago!imageAnd here’s a beautiful sunset we’ve had recently.
