This year I'm growing International Kidney (better known as Jersey Royals except you can only call them that when they are grown in Jersey!). Size wise some of them are whoppers! Taste wise they are getting the "Yum!" vote from the family so I might well grow these again next year :)
The borage seeds that I sowed back in March have also grown well, I planted them out in one of the beds in June & they started flowering in the last week of July. I love the furriness of the buds & the blue of the open flowers almost as much as the bees do!
I only needed half of it to make this family favorite supper...
While some things have gotten big other things are closer to the other end of the scale...Pretty small cucumber huh?! I don't think it's going to be a bumper crop! With the way the weather has been I really wasn't sure I would get anything off the three cucumber plants that grew from the seeds I sowed in March. I have had mixed success with cucumbers up here over the years, I only persevere because I love eating them so! Just like tomatoes, nothing really beats the taste of them warm & freshly picked from the greenhouse - YUM! :-)
Well I am going out to go check those courgette plants again, I hope you manage to enjoy some outdoor time this weekend - although given that for some of the UK it is a bank holiday that will probably bring on the rain!
