Things are really growing outside( & inside) I have more lettuce than I know what to do with. The beans outside are creeping up the sticks while inside the polytunnel we are getting our first delicious pods which I can’t resist eating as I water. There are lots of green peas, the tomatoes are large and green and the aubergines-which still seem like a bit of magic when they grow are turning from the deeply beautiful purple flowers to almost black shiny fruits. Courgettes are growing plump. It is all very peaceful outside.
