Until last night I had never eaten Asparagus! I guess it was one of those veggies I just assumed I wouldn't like so never bothered trying it. What have I missed out on - it's amazing, I loved it and I think I'm going to have to have a go at growing it. I know it's not one of the easiest veggies to grow but I really am hooked.
Anyway all is going well at the veggie plot so far, the only annoying thing is that my Broccoli has bolted - lovely flowers though!
The sweetcorn is going great guns
I already have plenty of Courgettes to pick
For the first time ever I have Cucumbers growing on the vine in June (last year all Cucumbers failed)
Even the Tomato plants are full of flower - that's never happened this time of year before, I may get ripe Tomatoes this year for the first time ever!
Strangely the Cabbages in the polytunnel are free from all slug damage but the cauli's appear to be a favourite of them. What's even stranger is that the outdoor Cauli's and Cabbages are also completely slug damage free. The only thing I can think of is it's because the outdoor ones are covered in fleece but I've never heard of that being a slug repellant before.

Now I'm off to find out how to grow that amazing Asparagus.
