Late July garden update #gardening #food

Everything appears to be going well apart from the runner beans aren’t flowering yet.

Another batch of early potatoes that are actually pretty large:

One point devil kilos, 1.666kg. There’s another couple of rows of three plants left (on the left / just above the onions):

The main crop won’t be required till August:

But the plants still look good, they’ll keep growing and growing, muhahahaaa.
The onions are starting to gain weight:

And the leeks are doing well too:

The plum tree is still heavy (though a few have fallen)

Half the apples have fallen, but there are still some remaining

Lettuce consumption falls (in my house) when the potatoes are in season, but they are still cared for (watered):

The raspberry plants are providing a constant supply, we’ll freeze some as we quickly get bored of them.
Strawberries are small and not very many, but my toddler loves them, so I don’t get to have any… maybe there are more that get eaten and I don’t see them.

And finally, who said lazy gardening doesn’t pay off? I’ll soon have blackberries because I couldn’t be bothered to clip back the brambles:
