Pea pods!

I'm so excited! Remember the seeds I planted back in April. Well, not only do I have loads of tomato plants that seem to be doing well, but I have my first ever pea pods! (To the right - they're still tiny but they're there.)


Fresh peas from the garden!

And here are some of the tomatoes, with a big bag of salad (we've eaten the first pot of leaves already) and herbs and peas in the background.


And yet more tomatoes (I think every single seed came up!) and courgettes and French beans.


I've not done so well with other things. It's a lost battle with the slugs over the broad beans, and the beetroot and carrots seem to be struggling too. But it's the first year I've tried this and even a few veg will be great!
