having a firkle* on Monday as one of the first early potato Vales Emerald plants had started dying back and I was pleased to find these. They were all just a bit bigger than large egg sized and needless to say they were really delicious. (* Carrie prefers to be Furtling for Dinner).
Pods are forming on the broad beans Witkiem Manita but they’ve also got blackfly, which is not surprising in view of the worrying lack of ladybirds this year. I’ve pinched the tops out, and sprayed them, so hopefully they’ll be okay. All the other beans are growing well.
Today I was able to pick the first few raspberries, which look like being the first of many this year. I must remember to sort out some containers for them so that I’ve got something to bring them home intact.
Have a good weekend, which looks like being warm and sunny here!
