Garden growing well

I managed to get some garden work done yesterday: courgettes planted out in the veg bed, to start with.

Then some cucumbers potted up - five Telegraph should grow long and straight, like their name suggests, and six F1 hybrids.  Not grown those before, so interested to see how they turn out.  Not sure I have room for 11 cucumber plants, so may be giving some away!

Little Gem lettuces needed pricking out desperately.  Also sowed some more for a good succession of salad all summer.

And three kinds of tomatoes potted up - Sweet Million and two new varieties.  I have already got older tomato plants in the greenhouse which UJ and a friend of the FH's gave us, so these will be the next round and will probably have to be planted outside, but they will probably still be giving us tomatoes in the autumn.

In addition, dwarf bean and runner bean seeds were also sown.

The back lawn was cut too, so it is looking a little tidier out there now.
