Tomatoes ‘sweet millions’
Courgettes ‘summer holiday’
Courgettes ‘Ambassador’
Calendula ‘Pink Surprise’ or ‘Sunset Buff’

Our first proper harvest, where I picked enough for us to be able to make a meal. The potatoes did a few meals. The basket was Mum’s, she bought it in a market in Brittany years ago, when she and Dad still had an allotment. Dad gave it to me a few months ago because he doesn’t use it.

My dahlias have been through the wars. The slug wars. Some of them are looking better than others, and a couple of plants look like they might start making flower buds soon. We’ll see.

Nasturtium ‘Blue Pepe’ or ‘Empress of India’, I forget which is which.
Cosmos ‘antiquity’
Chocolate cosmos
