July, it's all upward and onward from here

The shortest day has been and gone, I always feel happier knowing that the days will start to grow longer and soon things will be popping and bursting all over the place! :)

The tender stem broccoli plants have been producing very well, once the main head is removed the side shoots need almost daily harvesting.

Main head still smallish

The side shoots after an earlier decapitation.
Each and every garlic clove has sprouted and are growing well, I'll wait till September/October before adding a good layer of sheep pellets to give them a strong growth burst for spring.
