It seems like ages but the tomatoes are finally forming and I know I'll have a glut soon as I have so many tomato plants.
As usual, I've not been that good at pinching out the side shoots so I have a rambling mass of tomato plants sprawled across the patio. The cherry toms in pots are looking slightly more ordered. Most of them were seedlings.
I've also got a few sweet peppers and chillies expanding nicely.

Very late in the season but I've planted up some runner beans that I managed to find in a local garden centre. They were looking a little worse for wear being the end of the season but if we continue to have a long, hot summer I might get some beans from them if I can keep the pests off.

Bit like making pancakes - the first ones aren't usually very good and mis-shapen (or is that just me) but actually the green one's not too bad.
Been picking mangetouts for a couple of weeks although only a few at a time and the plants are looking very raggedy.
Gave the whole garden a good watering tonight as we've had no rain for a couple of weeks and only a light shower before that. It's been incredibly dry and even the weeds are wilting!
The cucumbers are in flower as are the tomatoes but won't be picking them for a few weeks yet.
