As some of you are aware hubby has been tending to the plot this year, which has been a great help, but it is time to rejoin him on his quest to grow vegetables. Apart from that most of the digging is done, although there is hoeing to do but that is a never ending chore and soon there will be much picking and preserving.
Hubby put up a second greenhouse this winter, which has given the room we needed to play with aubergines. They are doing really well.
They do however hide rather well and this
were two we found hidden at the back. My crystal ball tells me that there will be Moussaka for supper on Saturday. Possibly with a cucumber and coriander salad,
and maybe some artichokes to start. We had ten artichokes off these plants just a few days ago and they are ready again.
The runner beans are showing promise as are the sweetcorn.
And as this is a knitting blog, lest one might think that I have given knitting up, which gives me the shudders just thinking about it.

I have allotment envy! I love Aubergines. Your knitting photo is lovely. xx
I have managed to grown some red onions although some are quite small as they were a bit squashed together! love that colour of the wool really lovely….
Looking good those veg, I managed some small red onions but next time will give them more room to grow, love the colour of the wool really beautiful!
I don't think I've ever seen an artichoke growing on the plant before! I'm not sure how I thought they appeared, maybe on the ground like pineapples. I learn so much from your blog!
I have never seen artichokes growing!! I'm really impressed!I envy the runner beans most of all, no one grows them here and we tried one time but nothing much happened.I'm hoping that once we are moved into the daylight that we can grow more than we can here in the forest.
