The first carrots from my bottomless buckets - success. Definitely doing more of these next year.
The first Sungold tomato to ripen and the first Summer Patty Pan Squash. Contrary to everything written in my books about the squash family not producing very well in containers - mine are starting to produce and look really healthy. Needless to say, the container they are growing in is huge.

The first of the Runner Beans - success. Many more to follow I hope. If I only had space for one vegetable this would be it. We had these for Sunday lunch with roast chicken - together with shredded cabbage, baby carrots and courgettes sauteed with butter and garlic, and of course, some of my lovely Charlotte potatoes - it's a good feeling when everything on your plate is home-grown.
