Weekly Harvest 17th Nov 20

17th November 2020

Last week I was surprised by raspberries and I picked them all, this week they all came back plus some more. I was once again picking raspberries in the wind and rain. Within all the autumn colours, dying back plants, seeing all the bright red raspberries seemed a bit strange.

It was a weekend of carrots and beetroot. The carrots, (too) late sown and was so not expecting much, in the garden. So that slugs and things didn’t eat them I pulled what I could find and, while small, were all worth having. I wanted to pick the remaining beetroot too but it seems the more you pick the more seems to be left in the ground. I pulled enough to make more beetroot chutney which we quite like.

We are pulling a lot of turnips and giving some of them away. We cut a red cabbage which was a bit on the small size but still a lot bigger than the ‘dolls house’ size we had last year. I had hopped they would do more but maybe once again they have been over shadowed by other plants.
