My Garden: First Crops of 2011!

I haven’t planted much this year due to my operation and recovery keeping me out of the garden, but I managed to plant a few seeds for cucumbers, runner beans, tomato and strawberrys and well as cress and lettuce seeds which shot up and peas, onions and beetroot which I’m not sure are going to make it.

This week I’m happy to see my cucumbers have started to appear:

Also I think I put too many runner bean plants in my bean planter,

What I’m most excited about though, is my blackberry bush, which I planted last summer, and thought I’d never see and fruits, however after over a year of tending to it, I picked (a few) ripe blackberries, and they were delicious.
