Strawberry & Sweet Pea harvest.
We have had so many strawberries, we made Cordial and eaten plenty with ice cream etc.
Main crop Maris Piper potatoes, most are in flower and the rain & sun has helped to boost the growth after a very dry April/May.
Cauliflowers are ready, a few have bolted but still OK for soup etc.
The firmer ones will make a lovely cauliflower cheese dish.
No sooner do we pull out plants that are finished (cauliflowers in this case) we plant more out, that we had started in seed trays.
The leek patch is looking good, the first lot I put in a few weeks ago have grown well & the ones put in most recently have taken too. Again the sun & rain has helped.
Another big harvest:
All the potatoes are looking good, most have flowers and the earlies have caught up, I think we will dig up some International Kidney very soon.
So another good week, inbetween the showers.
We have been down most days or evenings, just to do weeding, picking & a little more planting.
Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
