I thought I'll get started on a thread to feature all your harvests this growing year. Please post your photos - good/bad/bumper/lean harvests - here so that it is a motivation for all to grow-your-own. So here is my harvest of loganberries today:

Oxford. The City of Dreaming Spires.
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils (roses). Taking a bit of liberty with Wordsworth :)

    We’ve eaten all our strawberries but I noticed a few ripe raspberries, they’ll be next.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    The blackbirds have much better eyesight than we do and I only ever find the little stalks of the strawberries lying on the path. The rasps and blackcurrants and red currants are all long gone down the baby blackbirds’ throats. 🙄
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Cherries and strawberries, even raw ones, have been cleared out by the blackbirds here.

    I'll have to take photos from now on. So far this year we've had, broad beans, chard, spinach, spring onions, beetroot, Charlotte potatoes, mangetout, courgette, carrots, podding peas and tonight some baby leeks (very small but lovely on the griddle pan)

    Photos of a monster pak choi and it’s babies. Originally had 3 in the pot and I wanted to see how big it would get. This was mid June.

    Wow so many of you are so far ahead of us.
    From the polytunnel we had strawberries, pak choi, salads and kohl rabi.
    Tomatoes still small and green likewise for chillies and sweet peppers. Melon reluctant to make fruit.
    Outside red and black currants and gooseberries harvested.
    Broad beans second container yesterday with a very small amount of peas. size at all yet.
    Beetroot and spinach had to be sown again as very poor germintaion.
    Dwarf beans likewise.
    Loganberries not at all ready.
    Globe artichokes though fantastic.
    Onions soon to be ready.
    And don't start me on carrots!!!!
    We will obviously have a very late main harvest.

    Don't worry @bertrand-mabel My red and blackcurrants are only just turning, goosberries are a few weeks off as well. My tomatoes are in flower.
    My summer leeks are ready, and lettuce, spinach etc are all in full production. We're right in the middle of the strawberry season here, the early types (Rumba) is done but the middles are in full swing and so are the lates.

    To date.
    We have had 10 mini cucumbers, on the second sowing of lettuce ( first lot was in the conservatory through all the bad May weather so picked early), the spring onions are going well, starting to pick beetroot and carrots,  new potatoes were disappointing, strawberries doing well.
    Summer Raspberries just about to ripen, toms still green, and the french beans are well behind after sowing for the third time.
