picked this week

Busy busy days with a mix of sunshine and rain. Picking soft fruit every day - mainly redcurrants but strawberries and raspberries have started ripening in the last few days

reaching the end of the first allotment lettuce and the earliest pea row. second pea row cropping well,as are the mangetout/sugarsnap peas - though they rarely make it as far as the kitchen. still picking spinach though it's starting to run to seed. masses of rocket - some self-set - in the garden.
Hoping for broad beans this week


  1. such beauties, you know we don't have rocket here, only in fancy smancy green grocers,, its peppery isn't it,,

  2. yes, rocket is peppery. I try to grow the fancier, more expensive salad leaves - and then buy the cheap lettuce if I need to!
