Weekly Harvest 10th Sept 2019

10th September


Lots of beetroot with the idea that I will pickle some of them as currently anything that is not moving is getting pickled. The multi-sowing of these has worked out well, it doesn’t look like we have many left but as they are mostly in groups of three there is a lot more than it looks.

Tomatoes, both small yellow ones and some medium sized plum tomatoes with a slight dark stripe like a tiger.

It could be the end of the cucumbers, I didn’t see any small ones as I pick those that were ready.

Still thinning carrots, I have moved onto the ones I sowed following the beetle attack. They were now a bit over crowded so I pulled some of the larger ones in the middle, they all happened to be coloured ones including a really good looking dark red one.

I prepped a first bed for winter, the old pea bed which in a couple of months may have onions. My first expensive for a while was two bags of spent mushroom compost, one of these went on top of this tidied up bed.
