More Edible Gardens

Ready for picking, these strawberries are the first of the season in  my garden.

Above: The pretty flowers on my ‘Serbian Cherry’ tomato plants (part of the Diggers Club Heirloom Selections) are a promise of a bountiful crop.

Below: Some of the new tomatoes, on this dwarf sprawling plant. Growing 60cm high and spreading to 60cm wide, the ticket on the ‘Serbian Cherry’ seedling promised a high yield and I can’t wait to taste the fruit.

I planted a mix of green curled endive and a selection of combination lettuce (including cos, mignonette and butterhead), which have already provided leaves for many salads. Harvesting continually by picking the outer leaves seems to encourage more growth.
