This week I’ve been lifting some potatoes, both Charlotte and Kestrel, the latter being a good size which will keep well to use later on. The one at the top of the picture fills the palm of my hand.
I’ve also started to lift the onions, which thankfully look okay with no sign of onion fly or white rot. They do vary as you can see although most are around tennis ball size. These are Red Baron which keep well.
I’ve also picked the first runner beans St George, with lots more to to come if the numerous red and white flowers are any indication.
I’ll soon be picking the first of several cucumbers Marketmore from the plant growing on the plot. There are a few already at least four inches long, with some smaller ones and more flowers as well.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
