Sunday Snap: Midsummer in the Garden

June 23, 2013

Today’s snap was so difficult to choose! It’s a cloudy, showery day here in the hills and the vegetable garden looks quite dull in the photos, but we have some pretty flowers blooming too. After much deliberation I’m sharing a photo of our garden with you that was taken this afternoon (mostly because it’s unusually tidy having been strimmed and weeded!) and have Instagrammed the pretty floral pics.

Greenside Up Garden, 23 June '13

All the vegetable beds are full now, with seeds or plants starting to germinate or grow. The polytunnel is bulging with salads, corn, squash, beans, herbs and tomatoes and we’re harvesting strawberries daily.

We’re looking forward to watching the garden grow over the next couple of months and reaping the rewards.

If you’ve a link to photos of your own garden I’d love to see them, being the nosy kind of gardener I am 🙂

    noisy or nosy ;0)

    Brian spent the afternoon weeding and I went to a charity thing nearby – been lashing rain here since I got home. Your garden does look v tidy 🙂

      Oops! Rarely noisy 😉 rain on and off… it’ll need strimming again in a week or so, things we do for love eh.

      It looks lovely! Tried leaving a comment but having problems with blogger comments at the moment. Love your big potato planters, looking forward to seeing how many spuds you get out of them. I started growing veg in containers but don’t recall them all looking that healthy.
