Runner beans!! The top two were the first of the season, earlier in the week, the large number below were picked later. Not a lot really, but it's a start and much earlier than expected.
I'm hoping there'll be more to join it soon.
Another first of the year - beetroot - with a very late savoy cabbage which should have been ready in winter!
I've been thinning the apples this week and the tiny removed ones will be used for sauce.
I think I've now cleared the allotment gooseberry bushes of fruit - there was quite a lot but none of it very large.
Although we have enough rhubarb at home, I decided to pull a couple of sticks from one of the new crowns at the allotment. You aren't really supposed to do this - rather leave the crowns alone for the first year but the sticks look good and strong so I'm hoping it will be OK
