I canโ€™t believe itโ€™s 26th June already and weโ€™ve only had 2 or 3 sunny days in Yorkshire so far this month. Todayโ€™s topic for #mymonthontheplot is fruit. Thereโ€™s loads of strawberries and raspberries out there already so I thought โ€œtomatoesโ€ Iโ€™m confused about whatโ€™s a fruit and whatโ€™s a vegetable. Apparently if the seedโ€™s on the inside itโ€™s a fruit and if theyโ€™re on the outside itโ€™s a veggie. So tomatoes are fruit and strawberries are veg. What does that make rhubarb? Veg apparently but Iโ€™ve no idea why. Iโ€™m still confused. We need an @the_rhs expert to sort out this mess ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜Š These arenโ€™t even my tomatoes - still need more โ˜€๏ธ to ripen mine #fruit #tomatoes #confused

Is anyone else struggling to get motivated? A combination of the weather and work has meant that it's been almost a week since I was last at the plot. I'm hoping the weather is kind tomorrow so we can get down there for a sort out. ๐ŸŒฑ We inherited this rose from the previous owners of the house so I have no idea about the variety, but it's starting to bloom now and is absolutely stunning. ๐ŸŒฑ Stay warm and dry on this grim Wednesday! ๐ŸŒฑ #everyonecangrowtheirown #thehappygardeninglife #allotment #gardeningwithkids #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #volkstuin #gyo #growyourownveggies #allotmentgarden #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #growfoodnotlawns #potager #gardenersofinstagram #gardeninguk #allotmenteering #allotmenteer #growyourownveg #mymonthontheplot #ukallotment #kitchengarden #girlswhogarden #veggiepatch #allotments #allotmentuk #instagardeners #vegpatch #moestuin #plotlife

A little bit different from my usual pics but I had to show off my FIRST courgettes. Yes the absolute first courgettes I have ever grown that I picked last night. In fact the first food I have ever grown because I canโ€™t take credit for the razzers because the bushes were already there... but the courgettes are all my own work! I couldnโ€™t wait to eat them either so I fried them up Turkish style at 9.30pm at night ๐Ÿ˜‚ And they were lush ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Just a little bit proud of myself ๐Ÿ™ˆ Is anyone else attempting to grow any veg this year? __________________________________________ #thehappygardener #thegoodlife #courgette #digforvictory #landgirl #howdoesyourgardengrow #gardentotable #growforit #epicgardening #ediblegarden #everyonecangrowtheirown #homegrownfood #thehappygardeninglife #eatwhatyougrow #grownbyme #allotmentlife #amateurgardener #gardeningismytherapy #jnlallotmentlove #aseasonalyear #embracingtheseasons #petitejoys #thehappynow #nothingisordinary #pursuepretty #myhappyviews #forprettysake #whatsinthebasket

Yesterday was cauliflower harvest day!!! Unfortunately it wasn't planned but had to be done because they had all started to bolt ๐Ÿ˜ฅ We have had such crazy weather highs and lows the past couple of weeks so I think that might be the reason but I decided I wouldn't dwell on it. They were my first ever seeds sown and for a first attempt I think I've done ok. I'll certainly have a bash at them again next year! . . #cauliflower #bolting #boltingveg #homegrown #grownfromseed #growyourown #gyo #everyonecangrowtheirown #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #organicgrowing #fromplottoplate #ediblegarden #kitchengarden #allotmentgarden

Things been super hectic and worked over the weekend so a bit behind on #mymonthontheplot so two in one post today. Here's my #giant harvest from today that went into a risotto. Broccoli, broad beans, onions, garlic, mango tout and the first courgettes. Was planning for it to be veggies only but the chorizo needed eating and it's just too delicious! Also, ski boots #repurposed they need something in them now the bulbs have died back. And some strawberries too. They've been so good this year!

Parsnips are doing pretty well in these plastic tubs. They were reduced as they had a crack in the bottoms. Better used to grow parsnips than get thrown away.

#mymonthontheplot has set us the topic of โ€œgiantโ€ for todayโ€™s posts I didnโ€™t want to show any giant weeds or giant slugs as both would be too depressing So instead please have a peek at my giant cucumber - the first one Iโ€™ve harvested this year.

Summer squash bed is looking fantastic! Loads of little fruit and flowers forming. I *may* have planted too many too close together again....lol. There will be lots of pruning to help keep the airflow up and mildew down.

A great haul today! ๐Ÿ‘Œ Unfortunately this is the last of our broad beans as the slugs are eating into the pods and causing them to rot before they are ready for us to pick. So I have pulled the lot, picked all the untouched pods and Mr H helped me shell them. There's now half a bed free to sow with new seeds, although I haven't decided what yet. I might keep it free for the courgette plants I have ordered from @mrfothergills to replace the ones the slugs also ate. ๐Ÿ˜ก

If you love your courgettes i recommend growing these 'Summer Ball' variety. We grew these last year, they have a sweeter taste and thinner skin so dont cook for to long or will loose their taste. We picked them when they get about 10cm wide, Pan fried with butter for 10 minutes...they taste amazing.๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฝ #plot38 #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentcommunity #allotmentfood #allotmentuk #gyo #gyoveg #courgettes #vegetables #summerballcourgette #everyonecangrowtheirown #healthyeating

So many berries! That sunshine caused our strawberry patch to go a bit mental ๐Ÿ“ โ˜€ luckily @charliebrad88 also noticed that our blackcurrant bush was loaded as well. It's grown a lot this year so they were hiding under all the new foliage.

Everything I did to protect the mange tout on the plot failed. I had accepted that I wasnt going to get any produce. Yesterday, to my surprise, two little pods were hidden among the weeds. I had a closer look and lots more flowers were hidden.

I can't tell you how excited the kids were to spot the beginnings of our first pumpkin, it was such a lovely feeling to have grown and carved our own lanterns for Hallowe'en last year. Hopefully it will be a giant one this year! ๐ŸŽƒ I've placed it on a wooden board to hopefully prevent it from rotting on the wet ground. It's a drizzly, grey day here and I'm considering postponing our trip to the plot; it feels like it should be a duvet day today, but I'm not quite sure the three year old will understand that concept. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ . #everyonecangrowtheirown #thehappygardeninglife #allotment #gardeningwithkids #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #volkstuin #gyo #growyourownveggies #allotmentgarden #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #growfoodnotlawns #potager #gardenersofinstagram #gardeninguk #allotmenteering #allotmenteer #growyourownveg #mymonthontheplot #ukallotment #kitchengarden #girlswhogarden #veggiepatch #allotments #allotmentuk #instagardeners #vegpatch #moestuin #plotlife

Spent the evening sat in the garden pottering and planning what I want to do with the garden. Had a lovely garden update video chat with my lovely uncle ( @stevesmith66 ) too. I am feeling beyond grateful for this space I have, as it brings me joy and peace, and I'm learning so much more to appreciate every little thing out there too.. the little bugs, buds, flowers, tendrils, pods etc.etc. I am taking full advantage of feeling good and trying to consciously enjoy it all as it's those memories that are so helpful when my head space is not as good ๐Ÿฅฐ so go out and enjoy the beauty because wow....

Question! For those of you who have grown Warba potatoes before, is this all the flower I am going to get? Going by the length of time they have been in I should be good to harvest in a week for two, but they haven't flowered (except for these little things) and are still super healthy green plants.

The theme for today is โ€œrepurposeโ€in Juneโ€™s #mymonthontheplot My allotment greenhouse is a mish-mash of materials - some of the bricks are from the original base which is now over 60 years old, the glass is a mix of old panels and the walls are made of polycarbonate sheets supported by wood from an earlier greenhouse that blew away ๐Ÿคฃ If you look closely you will notice the ridge is two bits of old guttering Pic 2 shows the bench inside which is made from the remains of the old allotment boundary fence None of it is pretty but I think itโ€™s pretty wonderful Happy make do and mend #repurposed #makedoandmend #wonderful

I was a little worried that the butternuts were taking over the bed (and one of them had escaped about half a metre out of the bed in just a week) so I built a little trellis type thing for it to climb up.

Wooooooohaaaaa! What a great Garlic haul! I went a bit nuts with the garlic this year but Iโ€™m pretty pleased I did as so far I have dug up 30 of the 60 planted in October and itโ€™s a real pick and mix selection ๐Ÿ˜‚. Some have been in too long and split some have grown no bigger than my thumb, there may be a bit of rust rearing itโ€™s ugly head and some ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปare just gorgeous. I love each and every one for their own little personality and I look forward to eating one and all!!! My garlic soldiers are all currently lined up chilling in the greenhouse to dry. I will cook the baby ones in a stir fry tonight and dry off the rest to store. The Bernstein family will slowly work their way through them ๐Ÿ˜‹. Any that I think are extra special I might even give them a treat and re plant the cloves again in autumn. Swipe to see my happy Garlic soldiers and my sad defeated cloves ๐Ÿ™ƒ.

The weather is due to be particularly crappy for the next few days here in Sheffield. Humid thunder downpours until late Wednesday, so a quick pre-work trip to the plot to make sure the polytunnel was watered and plenty of air passing through. Those vents are open and so is the door. The wet, warm, humid conditions are perfect for blight to thrive on your tomato crop! Not in our gaff, though. Not if we can help it! Whilst I was there - with Midge of course - I picked the first of the mange tout and a few strawberries from the immature plants. They wonโ€™t crop heavily this year, but all in the investment for next summer! Happy Monday, everyone.

I realised my grid exposes my preference for the right hand side of my plot so thought I'd give you all a peek from a different angle. ๐ŸŒฑ The strawberry patch is blooming but I'm not sure if the borage I planted as a companion needs to be tamed; the parsnips are enormous - I'm hoping the carrots will catch up.
