Currently we're enjoying a multitude of tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, parsley and basil. The strawberries are no longer flowering or fruiting (much to Oliver's dismay) so it looks like we'll have to wait till next season for more of those.
(came in a mix of heirloom seeds so not sure what it is. I think perhaps Black Russian)
I planted beetroot seeds last month and have been enjoying the leaves in salad. I'm careful not to take too many leaves or it will be at the expense of the beetroot bulb!
Our small chilli plant is sporting about 15 chillies. I'm looking forward to when they turn red.
I haven't bought any carrot seeds, but I have what appear to be carrot seedlings popping up all over the patch. I suspect they came amongst other seeds I bought. Hopefully they'll do ok and I'll have a free harvest!

In a couple of weeks I'll be preparing the beds for winter crops of garlic, fennel and onions (well that's the plan anyway!).
