June - Whats in season?

The weather it the UK is glorious sunshine at the moment and it really feels like the start of summer. We've eaten most of our meals outside for the last few days as well which is a very plesant change. The variety of fresh fruit and vegetables in season now in the UK is rapidly increasing. The pictures are of the few vegetables and herbs I've chosen to grow in my small back garden. These were taken a week ago and alread the mangtout are twice as tall!

Well not sure how it is in the Uk right now but here the weather seems to have turned, although I am still hoping that tomorrow at least will be good! I am a bit envious of your veggies in the garden as we keep wanting to start but haven't got around to sowing anything!! And are probably too late by now... Looks good!
