A couple posts down I shared some early Summer and Spring photo’s from this year, here you can see the later progress on the plot with photo’s from early Summer (May / June) through till August.

Cucamelons in various growth stages in my polytunnel – ( I wish I grew a few more of these plants! )

One Funky Looking Caterpillar!

First Good Mixed Harvest, Large Courgette / Marrow in the back (30+ cm long and at least 8/9cm wide), 4x Italian Vine (Costoluto Fiorentino) Heirloom Tomatoes, 1x Cucumber, 9x Scarlett Runner Beans, 12 x Loganberries and Raspberries, 4 Cherry Tomatoes and at least 50x Blueberries (The blueberries are all getting small now as it is nearing end of season, but the taste is Great!!) I have never tasted a store bought Blueberry anywhere near as nice as these …

Sunchokes (Jerusalem Artichokes) halfway through the growing season they were half the height they are at the End of August, placed in an area to hide my rain barrels from view and sunlight, Variegated Mint is growing in pots beneath.with Wild Garlic in the ground beneath.
