Picked this week - 18th August 2013
we've just returned from a week's holiday so have lots of veg that needs picking NOW - before it bolts or gets completely eaten by birds/slugs/snails!
We found a couple of spring cabbage - that should really have been ready to pick before now.
A massive cucumber - the outer is rather tough so for once I'm peeling it.
Various spinach/ lettuce leaves
courgettes - before our holiday, I said we didn't have the glut that others growers had been talking about. Looks like the plants are determined to prove us wrong.
Another scraggy cauliflower and some runner beans
a pleasant surprise - lots of blackberries. we've picked easily twice this amount in the last couple of days but now they may slow down.
and we've started to lift some onions - just the ones we need for cooking at the moment.
