Last week I lifted over 50 onions for drying and storingThey range in size from a golfball to a tennis ball and will keep me going to at least the end of the year.
I dug up the last of the Kestrel potatoes which I’ve been eating all month. They’re nice but some are rather on the small side That’s a 5p coin which is 3/4″ or 20mm diameter! Anyway only kidding as most are a regular size with a few big ones like this
The carrots Little Fingers are crunchy and taste good straight out the ground
On the down side something has devoured my second sowing of lettuce ButtercrunchThankfully I’m not that fussed as I much prefer the Lollo Rosa which has survived untouched for me to have in my salads.
There’s also been plenty of red beetroot Cylindra, raddishes French Breakfast and spring onions Summer isle. John kindly gave a good sized cucumber, and I’ve been enjoying the rhubarb that Brian and Joe both keep telling me to help myself to.
The blackberries are starting to ripen and are delicious. If I can stop eating them as I pick them then I’ll bring some home to have with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream.
It really has given me a great deal of pleasure to sow, grow, harvest and then eat these various vegetables, and hopefully there’s still plenty more to come!
