Apparently I have them this year..
Last year was a bit off, we had some potatoes, some sad looking peas and a few strawberries, but this year is looking a whole lot more promising.
Our strawberries are just starting to produce little green berries that are promising a very large Eton Mess later on in the summer..
The potatoes are standing strong and we have a whole raft of herbs!
I especially like how our chives are looking, they have beautiful purple flowers on them.
(You can also see our pea shoots in the background here)
I've been meaning to plant actual flowers, just for display but there isn't really anything that exciting about flowers to me. They look nice but I love growing food so much more, because you get to eat it afterwards!
I am also quite excited by our plum trees, the fruit was great last year and we made lovely jam. So watch this space for plum recipes - jam, crumble, pie, spicy plum sauce, everything plum!
