We have lots of Poppies on our plot, all self seeded.
But love this white edged one, wonder what it's called?
We have pulled & dug up so many weeds so I had to get a bonfire going, luckily as our site is surrounded by farmland we can have bonfires anytime.
Got the last of the Picasso main crop potatoes in today, another 4 rows of 10 in each, to add to the 3 rows planted a few weeks ago.
So thats 7 rows (70 seed tubers) in total!
Brought the petrol strimmer down and cut the grass path again, it looks a lot better too. I cut the paths in the fruit cage too and we spotted loads of berries ripening.
Just a few of the Cox's apples now forming due to the warm sunny conditions.
And our goosberry bush is laden, so we thinned it out by removing a few from each stalk, to allow the rest to swell & sweeten.
Look at this handsome caterpiller munching this stalk & leaves.
Wonder what butterfly it will turn into ?
Another harvest of rhubarb, this one is Stockbridge Arrow, a prolific producer when you feed it well over winter.
After removing the leaves this lot weighed 6 1/4lb (2.83kg)
And more Victoria rhubarb, again after removing the leaves this lot weighed 8 1/2lb (3.85kg).
The heaviest stalk was 1 3/4lb (800g) another record breaking stalk!
So todays harvest to add to the Rhubarb:
Strawberries 1 1/2lb (680g)
Peas just 1/2lb (226g)
And here are the Gooseberry thinnings, just 1 1/2lb (680g).
So another 6 hours work done today, with a break for lunch and a cuppa too.
Not too sunny so it was easier to get all that done!
Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
