Lots of veggies ready to harvest this month including some of my favourite easy to grow plants - turnip, courgette, beans and salad fixings.
Its great to pop out into the garden and have veg for a salad or stir fry - without the need to go to the shops!
Here's a little snapshot of the veg that's thriving this month...

|Courgette / Zucchini are finally reaching a good size. Although baby courgettes are tasty too.|
Below: Courgette (yellow zucchini) 'Soleil F1' is slower to progress.
'Dwarf Purple Queen', started from seed in April are producing. I like to use them in stir fries.|

Silver 2' for stir fry.|
Below: More salad ingredients harvested at the weekend. (beetroot, 3 types of lettuce, spring onion, courgette).
On the not so successful side - veg I've been trying to grow but pests keep eating the seedling include pok choi and kohl rabi (however, I'll keep trying)!
