Considering the way Autumn is advancing I'm a little surprised at how much we seem to have picked this week.
A mini-glut of cucumbers and a couple of chillies starting to ripen.
Some runner beans - less this week but still enough for dinners
French beans too - they're cropping more this week.
A few peas and quite a bit of red oakleaf lettuce and American Land Cress which has self set at the allotment in a row of beetroot!
Some tomatoes - mostly picked green in case the night time temperatures drop low enough for frost
A strange pepper or chilli or something. The one at the top is a cayenne pepper and I thought the lower one was a jalapeno chilli but it's grown rather large and doesn't seem very hot from my cautious testing.
A red cabbage that had been ignored and started to burst open so now won't keep well.
The sweetcorn hasn't been a great success and I don't think we'll get real cobs from it now so I'm going to pull them as mini corn for stir fries
Lastly a couple of beetroot and the first parsnip of the year. I'm just hoping not all of them are going to fall into the 'comedy veg' category!
