It's been a month since my last harvest post, but I have been getting plenty from the garden.
These Raspberries are the first of the Autumn crop, - we've been away for a couple of weeks, and the sight of these on our return was wonderful, - along with bushes full of blueberries. We harvested a punnet of each and I had them for breakfast this morning with my cereal. (the boys ate theirs raw and unaccompanied)
After complaining about my courgettes, they decided to amaze me and grow. - I harvested 6 before we went away, and came back to 5 more, - 3 of them marrow size.
My pot of carrots has produced 6 portions of finger size vegetables all through the month, and we thinned William's parmex carrots, which were also edible size.
The mangetout gave us several helpings, even though they were William's favourite snack food when playing in the garden this month.
The runner beans have also been busy cropping, but as they didn't get
enough rain over the last month, they are rather tough overwhelmed by blackfly, and not the best
The lettuces went bonkers, and after we'd stuffed our faces with meal after meal of Can Can,Lollo rosso, and Cos I even had to give several away. We got a couple of helpings of rocket before it succumbed to the Flea beetle, and to add to our salads, we've harvested the first of the cherry tomatoes - Garten perle from the hanging basket outside the kitchen door, and red alert and ildi from the greenhouse (bit disappointed that red alert are only a mouthful at a time, I thought they were larger)
there are lots more tomatoes ripening, and i'm looking forward to more fruit breakfasts this month, as the apple tree is now producing.
