Today we ate our first new potatoes and they were really, really good. Only six of them but enough for the two of us! I don't think the plant has produced very many as I had to scrabble around for these but better than none! The lettuce seeds are doing well and managed to survive the dry spell without water while we were away in Malvern. I can see that we will be having lots of blackcurrants again. I still haven't used all of last years! Graeme mowed the lawn and trimmed the edges so although the borders are weed invested the garden actually looks quite tidy! I need to spend some concentrated time on doing things in the garden before it gets totally out of hand!
