    I just thought it would be good to see what they're all looking like at the moment. Just now mine is looking at it's very best - everything is in and coming along nicely, and no caterpillars to wreak havoc yet!

    So lets see what yours look like.

    Here are mine

    i haven't grown anything this year, i've only grown tomatoes and herbs in the past :lol: i moved here end of last summer and the garden looked like a bomb went off in it, i've worked on it this year and it now looks lovely and i've got some herbs growing but now need to prepare some ground and want a raised bed and i then intend to grow veggies for next year :D

    You can start sowing some things again at the end of July, and through August and September, for overwintering. I sow Frostie cabbages, white lisbon spring onions, and an overwintering lettuce (Valdor) from July onwards, and I also plant overwintering onion sets and garlic in October, and overwintering broad beans (Aquadulce Claudia) and peas (Feltham First). They all go in the spaces left after harvesting crops in June and July and August.
