  2. Everything looks so wonderful and healthy. Oh and the buddleias..so pretty...I want them...I'm sooo getting them for my garden...and beautiful courgettes.
    I can't help it but to notice how your pears are still on the tree. Here pear harvest is in early June. Are that late pears or is it so big weather difference between our countries that here everything comes and dies much earlier?

    1. We tend to pick ours around September which is normal for our country.

      Those buddleias are on the plot as I took lots of cuttings that all grew!

  6. Great tour, Sue! Thanks for sharing your bounty.

    Boy you spoil your leeks. I'll admit I still don't yet know what a jostaberry is. Unlike yours, our courgettes have gone on strike because of the weather and because I didn't pamper them. (OK, I squeezed too many into the space because I didn't have the heart to discard any). I was delighted with our sweetcorn but now it is looking very washed out. Your's looks the picture of health. If this was wartime you would get a medal for all you have achieved! Thank goodness it's not, but you deserve the credit all the same.

    1. It's trying to spoil us rather than the leeks, Mal. I'm glad we're not at war too except maybe with the bugs and slugs.
