A few pictures - garden colour

When you try to write, editing is everything, and I can be self indulgent at times as I meander through thought.

I am also told that a good speech should be like a tennis players skirt - long enough to cover the essentials but short enough to be interesting.

Then again we all know a picture tells a thousand words - so on that note here are a few from the veg patch.
Borlotto Firetounge flowers
Dwarf Haricot

Dwarf Kinghorn Wax flower
Phaseolus Vulgaris

Broadbean selection

Baby Ironman F1

Baby All Year Round Cauli

Nice tight Greyhound cabbage
At least I got the shot, others destroyed by caterpillars and slugs

Squash from the garden
Used to make spicy summer squash
Squash flowers

Mr Little's Yetholm Gypsy flowers

And the spuds themselves

And a few beans

Garden Pickings
First Gherkin ever grown on this croft
