21st Garden - May

Yes I'm here again, crowing about my garden and the delights it will soon provide (fingers crossed.) The weather between April and today has generally been pretty poor, we even had snow last weekend. It does seem to be improving, well the forecast for the next few days seems to look good.

I think all the wet weather has provided me with a problem I've not really had before:

Can you spot the difference? The top photo should be aubergine like the one below.

Some of the peas have been nibbled too.

It appears we have a snail problem, but given that on occasion Toni has been known to eat them, I think it might be a good idea not to use snail pellets.

So in no particular order I give you:
Butternut squash




Courgette / zucchini
Mange tout


The fruit side is doing quite well too.

Strawberry in flower
Rasberry flower buds
 I know it's not strictly my produce, but I thought I'd also share a photo of my fish pond as it looks now.
