We are still eating every day from the garden - and picking cut flowers including May-sown sweet peas, scabious and rudbeckia 'Marmalade'. Vegetables still going strong include runner beans, mangetout, broccoli, courgettes (outside and in tunnel) and tomatoes.

Much to modest to blog it himself, here is Adam with Lawson Park's first prize winner - a red cabbage grown here in the Paddies, that trounced the competition at the recent Coniston and Torver Garden Club Annual Show.
Other successes included green chillis, herbs, runner beans and a cucumber. Sadly our interns' entries (a Battenburg cake in GA colours and a 'landscape' photo) went down rather poorly with the judges. But we love them anyway...
Throughout the afternoon we served up Toge soup, kimchee and sauerkraut all made from this cabbage's cousins to Show visitors, and it was a great success.
