June has heralded the start of the rose season. I grow quite a lot of roses and one of my favourites is Rosa Leda by the front gate. It looks wonderful and smells amazing as I wander up the path when I get home from work.
The veg beds are doing very well. I have already harvested two (yes two) asparagus spears plus some mange tout. Yes I have become a person who eats mange tout, who ever thought that such a grown-up thing would happen to me? The peas are almost ready to start harvesting and the broad beans are not far behind. I am yet to get a flower on the courgettes or cobra beans but they are close. My main thoughts at the moment about the veg beds is whether I grow too many potatoes. I love growing them, they are fun but they do take up a lot of room. I am seriously considering not growing them next year and just growing more pickable veg.
Thanks as ever to Helen for hosting this meme. Hard to think that next month will be July, I am sure I have lost a month or two this year.
