Miracle gro(w)!

What a difference a day makes - well, 9 days to be precise!

When I left Braye the potager was rewarding us with lettuces and radish, but little else. I've come home to a freezer full of blackcurrants, redcurrants, raspberries and strawberries.

The courgettes are fast developing,

The tomatoes, which were only planted out as 4-5" high seedlings at the beginning of May, are already forming

The artichoke is producing more and more fruits

The peas have shot up and are now "podding"

We have more potatoes than you can 'shake a stick at'

And the cherries are ripe for the picking

In short, everything is growing at an alarming rate! What have we let ourselves in for???
