Picked this week 28th October 2012

This week's harvesting has been mainly about picking crops before the threatened frost arrives. Runner beans have already finished cropping though.

Still managed to get some cucumbers - probably the last. Cleared off the chillies and a tiny cherry pepper to ripen in the kitchen and picked salad leaves from both allotment and greenhouse although they should be ok under glass.
We don't have many cold weather veg as the torrential rain put paid to carrots and swedes. We do have some rather large parsnips though which could last a while.
