Absolutely the best time of the year, when most crops are ready to harvest.
Here you can see the Blackcurrants which are almost ready we have Redcurrants too although not red yet but will be soon.
Our other berries are coming along fine too, the Blackberry, Tayberry & Loganberry have fruit almost ready to pick.
Everything in the Green House is doing well too.
Here you can see the Cucumber, we also have a Mini Cucumber plant which we have been harvesting from as you pick them at only 3" long. The Tomatoes & Peppers are also doing well but no fruit yet.
We give all these a daily water with Comfrey tea mixed in as a booster feed.
A typical days Harvest:
Anya new Potatoes
So as you can see everything is growing fast now, The Mange Tout in foreground are half way up the netting, all the salad crops and Onions, Garlic, Asparagus, Broad Beans, Peas etc are getting bigger every day. Rain & plenty of Sun certainly help.
Even the Chickens are benefiting as we collect a bag full of weeds for them too.
But today we had our biggest daily harvest of Strawberries, mostly 'Alice' variety, today we collected 1lb 14oz.
So just in one week we picked:
6lb 2oz Strawberries
3lb 13oz Raspberries
So we plan to make lots of Jam & Wine this year.
