Sunflowers and structure

 

The broad beans and peas are beginning to give a bit of structure to the garden but I decided that it needed a bit more height and few more focal points to I bought a couple of very cheap arches from a local garden centre.   Rather a wet misty day when I took these photos as you can see.

One of the arches is at the side where you can’t see it very well, and has cucumbers and squash (Onion Squash aka Uchiki Kuri) beginning to grow up it.     I’ve planted sweet peas and sunflowers (Claret from Thompson & Morgan) at the base of the main arch.

With the heavy rain we started to get in June and early July everything has really started racing ahead.

The Greedy Gardener is a seasonal food diary of a fruit and vegetable garden in Kent, the garden of England. I can't be self-sufficient but I'm trying to see how much of the food I eat can be measured in food metres rather than food miles.
