Picked this week - 21st July 2013

The weather's continued hot and dry most of this week  so although I've picked a lot of fruit, it's rather small stuff - the strawberries were as small as currants!

Even so, this must be our best blackcurrant crop ever. I must have got the pruning right last year.

quite a few things for salad this week - another cucumber and more mangetout peas

lots of lettuce

and some spring onions

In yesterday's drizzle we went to the allotment and picked wintery sort of veg - turnips and beetroot

broad beans and a teeny cauliflower

and lots of peas.
