This week in Stephanie's Kitchen Garden we will be hanging out the wasp traps.  Last year we were infested with them and they destroyed our blackberry crop so this year we are prepared early to prevent a repeat disaster.

With the current stunning summer weather we are busy busy busy watering and feeding our crops to keep them happy and it is hot work.  This week we will be taking a little time out to sit and revel in the fruits of our labour.  The garden is a beautiful sight and sometimes it's nice to stand back and admire all the hard work.  A seat in the shade with a bowl of freshly picked summer berries still warm from the sun and a glass of something chilled.  Heaven.

And then, it's back to work!

This week we will be harvesting strawberries, tayberries, blueberries, french beans, cucumbers, mangetout, broccoli and salads.
