I started lifting the Sturon onions last week and was pleased to see that they are looking good. Most are between golf ball and tennis ball size which is ideal for me. There should be enough to see me well into next year.
I’ve also been digging up Charlotte and Kestrel potatoes which, not surprisingly, are smaller than usual and fewer in number. That just leaves the red Desiree to dig up during the coming week. I guess that I’ll be lucky if the total I end up with will last me through to the end of the year.
At home the tomato Red Robin has so far produced one marble sized ripe fruit which I shall eat later with a cheese sandwich.
I’m picking at least a bowlful of blackberries each visit, along with a bouquet of fragrant sweet peas.
Happy gardening, and don’t forget that today is World Elephant Day!
