Now lifting the early maincrop potatoes. These are possibly Charlotte salad potatoes - the labels got lost and so a bit of guesswork is involved. We're a bit worried about how wet the ground is but so far hardly any have rotted. The last couple of days have been sunny and a week of dry weather is forecast so everywhere should have the chance to dry out properly.
Picked the first of our gooseberries - mainly from a bush that was already planted on the allotment when we took over but a few are from a small 'stick' planted in Spring. I've picked almost all the red- and black-currants now and the raspberries and strawberries are slowing down too - still enough for breakfasts though.
There are still plenty of broad beans and peas, and more than enough kale!
One small cauliflower...
|courgettes and crystal lemon cucumber|
....and courgettes, cucumbers
|an intentionally small cucumber, barely bigger than a courgette|
and even a couple of tomatoes.
