Picked this week - 10th November 2013

The end of last week saw the first frost with white-over roofs early in the morning. We'd been expecting colder weather so has been clearing some crops out at the allotment along with the normal routine picking.

Still managed to pick quite a few green- and ripening - tomatoes

what has to be the last of the peppers and courgettes

and probably the last of the raspberries

spinach, broccoli and kale

'salad' radishes

a tiny butternut squash

lifted most of the German blue autumn radishes. I'm not sure whether they would have survived in a frost in thee ground but will be ok stored in the garage

cabbage trio

most of the beetroot, again to store somewhere at home

and clearing the bean rows - some still OK to eat but most for seed


  1. Your garden is very productive how big is it.

    1. The garden isn't very big - 12m x12m, only half of which is veg patch. But the two allotments now make up 20m x 20m, if they were together. The previous tenant had planted fruit trees, so I'm hoping there'll be a proper little orchard area there too one day.
