Ripe toms at last!

I picked some ripe tomatoes today and three cucumbers. They are an odd shape (cues), but they taste really good! I gave the veg patch a bit of tidy, as I hadn't touched it since just before our little break. It's amazing how much everything has grown, including my new rows of spinach I put in just before I went on holiday. Nice to see something new growing there and filling in the bare batch where the onions were. The drawf French beans I put in from my cheap packet from Netto are doing better than my climbing ones. I don't think I will bother with them next year. If you are not at home to pick them every day they stop producing. I picked so many large beans today, I don't care for them much! The Butternut squash plant has produced 4 fruits so far, and is going mad and flowering everywhere. I've never grown one before, so I hope I actually get to eat something from it.

The good weather is set to stay for a few more days, so that will be good. Enjoy your weekend. Amanda x

Wow! They look fabulous! I can only look on in envy (again! haha!) for now. Spent today pulling up a blighted plant and trying to save the rest. :(

Sorry to hear you lost your toms. I thought I would too, but somehow they have survived.
