Summer colour

Every year I learn a bit more about the garden and flowers and what works. This spring, I have realised 2 personal goals: to have a fig tree that produces and to have deep red scented roses climbing the stone walls. I’m really looking forward to summer and autumn, to watching the fruit and vegetables grow and to cooking great stuff with them. I’m particularly excited about the raspberries, blackcurrants, and of course figs, while kings of the vegetable patch look set to be aubergine, peppers and chilli plants.
