picked this week
My first trip down to the allotment for a while and quite a surprise with the amount of picking and lifting to do.
Raspberries for breakfast
parsnips, beetroot and Italian radish - all covered in mud!
probably the last beans - some rather tough looking runners and french 'lazy housewife' beans which have grown really quickly.
surprise exotics from the polytunnel - courgettes, a tiny pepper, chilli and baby aubergines
lots of green tomatoes - and a few red
Autumn broccoli - side shoots growing almost as big as the main bit - and some small cauliflowers
Home grown lunch - spinach, tomatoes and radishes from allotment pickings, lettuce, rocket and beet leaves from garden, red cabbage from the cupboard (grown on the allotment and pickled)
....and not forgetting lots of mud!
