Deep colours on the soil, mulching is also an art

Tomatoes, Courgettes, Salad, Spinach, Basil...

Been away for a big while.
In the garden, tomatoes and courgettes are starting to flower. But these love hot humid weather and lately cold and rainy days do not help.
I have been eating fresh salads and using spinach nearly every day. But lettuce grows slower.
We also seed parsnips, black radish, round carrots, two kinds of basil, one oriental vegetable and others. Photos will be updated soon.
