First my lovely red roses are scorched and dry from the blazing heat, and those rose that were still clinging on are now fallen petals.
The strawberries started off very well and looked promising, but have stopped fruiting - unless of course the birds have got to them all.
Last year the strawberry plants yielded lots, this year maybe enough to fill four small punnets.
A small bowl of homegrown strawberries that was made into Strawberry Crisp Crumble.
A good harvest of wild strawberries.
Some raspberries growing in the garden, but like the strawberries I don't think its going to be as good as previous years harvests.
A handful of raspberries.
I have also harvested some rhubarb (not pictured) which was promptly transformed into a crumble.
Ah remember my Red Gooseberries. Well they were doing well turning a lovely currant red, but I decided to move them from prying birdy eyes and eager beaks and in moving them, they got neglected as I forgot to water the Red Gooseberry bush, that they are fell off and shrivelled. Another year without enjoying homegrown red gooseberries, not for me or for the birds.
The Courgettes are beginning to come along. I have harvested 4 Courgette Tondo di Piacenza. I reckon this time next week I will have also harvested the first Courgette Gold Rush. I also have marrows growing, well its called Courgette Squash Striato di Napoli which I hope to pick this weekend and stuff with grains.
Before heading to work early this morning, I picked a handful of garden peas, but I have not had a chance to download those pictures tonight. I will share a better harvest next week. I am sharing this with Harvest Monday hosted by Dave over Our Happy Acres.
