More pickings - 3rd July 2012

 Firstly two things that got missed off the last 'picked this week' post - some baby turnips, thinnings really and small enough to be cooked and eaten whole ....

 ....and enough garlic to hopefully keep the most determined vampire at bay.

Today we gave up waiting for a dry day and went to the allotment in the drizzle ... and found exciting things - blackcurrants and some strangely named autumn raspberries..

the first cucumber and two small courgettes (they didn't look like they'd grow any more and others are starting to form) ...

...four cauliflowers that I thought I'd lift before the slugs and snails ate them...

...a bag of peas....

...and a bigger bag of broad beans


  1. oh boy, what a haul!!!

  2. Wow you did really well with your harvest - I have mange tout in the garden and the fruits aren't ripe yet!
