Although we have been to the plot on numerous occasions, there has not been a lot worth blogging about.
Today however, was our first real harvest outside of onions and garlic!
We have grown pea’s for the first time and got a good crop so far. Still loads more to harvest.
We have lots of over wintering onions already dried and hanging in the garage but now we have the onion sets from this year as well as the red over wintering onions ready.
All of the red onions are so much bigger than the white ones.
The final beetroot are just in the pan now waiting to be skinned and then pickled. And now they are skinned and waiting to be pickled.
The cucumber isn’t ours, they are not ready just yet, it was given to us by our fellow allotmenteer, Jody.
The celery, another first timer, is doing well and is in with the cauliflower.
The corn, a mix of ours and Jody’s is coming well, even if a bit late. Worth a go.
We have also gather more blackberries for the second batch of jam, currently in the pan.
Just about 2lbs in weight so at least 5 jars worth!
So, as well as harvesting, we have weeded and tidied up more of the plot but there is still so much more to do….
Stay tuned folks…….
