The fruits of our labours are coming!

Even though we havent planted the vege garden this year, the good old faithfuls are still doing their wonderful thing.

Artichokes are forming on the huge plants we have, sending up small tennis ball sized ones that I know will soon be good for eating.

The raspberries are going crazying with a gazillion flowers, the whole bed is full of the promise of sweet raspberries.

Our new plants, both blackcurrant and gooseberry, are making their first fruit ever.  In fact the gooseberry flowered, and within a week has pea sized fruit on it which I imagine will grow so quickly I will be able to eat them before we go.
